Best American Guest Editors Announced

Dave EggersHere's a great way to persuade people in your home or office that you actually read more than US Weekly and What Would Tyler Durden Do.  Pick up one of the Best American anthologies published annually by Houghton Mifflin Harcout. 

Exclusively announced by Entertainment Weekly's Shelf Life yesterday, the list of 2010 Best American guest editors gives exciting insight into the direction this year's anthologies will take. 

Neil Gaiman for Comics?  A nerd's wet dream.  Peter Gammons for Sports Writing?  Classic expertise.  Eggers and Sedaris for Nonrequired Reading?  Two Daves for the price of one! 

The latter is my favorite title in the series, especially because Eggers takes input from his 826 Valencia writing workshop students. All of the titles are easy to love, because most of the selections are short, and can be picked up for a few minutes here or there. 

So make a note to preorder your favorite Best American 2010 anthology.  Keep it in the bathroom or your cubicle, and impress friends and coworkers with your up-to-date appreciation of great literature.

The Best Americans are great, and it usually takes me the entire year to go through them all so I'm always ready for the next editions. Comics has been a great edition to the series. I'm always happy to see how many high-brow cartoonists are out there.
