    Description

    A collection of the year’s best stories selected by celebrated two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward

    In her introduction to The Best American Short Stories 2021, guest editor Jesmyn Ward says that the best fiction offers the listener a “sense of repair”. The stories in this year’s collection accomplish just that, immersing the listener in powerfully imagined worlds and allowing them to bring some of that power into their own lives. From a stirring portrait of Rodney King’s final days to a surreal video game set in the Middle East, with real consequences, to an indigenous boy’s gripping escape from his captors, this collection renders profoundly empathetic depictions of the variety of human experience. These stories are poignant reminders of the possibilities of fiction: as you sink into world after world, become character after character, as Ward writes, you “forget yourself, and then, upon surfacing, know yourself and others anew."

    The Best American Short Stories 2021 includes:

    Gabriel Bump • Brandon Hobson • David Means• Jane Pek • Tracey Rose Peyton • George Saunders • Bryan Washington • Kevin Wilson • C Pam Zhang, and others

    Fair listen

    Good writing, each story more depressing then the last. struggle to finish. Wouldn't recommend if you're looking for an light hearted escape from reality.

    Some good writing

    A few stories were excellent, but there was a surplus of stories narrated by hyper-introspective depressive individuals. As representatives of that self-absorbed genre these stories held their own, but while reading most of the stories I could not help think of writers who had written similar stories in previous eras, but had done so with more literary skill, and slightly more interesting lives to report on.

    the voices are not enjoyable to listen to

    I had to read this book for school but I opted voice over.

    I couldn't stand to listen to the introduction which was mostly about pandemic politics.

    I think the stories were good but the voices were at times intolerable.

    Clementine, Carmelita, dog I think was a great story but I could hardly stand the narrator, who read every line in a question? kept doing it all the time? and hardly ever stopped.

    the native american story was voiced over in such a whispery croak I couldn't finish it.

    the story about the Asian girl who had Catholic stigmata was excellent and narrated well.

    and the first story sounded really interesting but it seemed to be narrated by a person who was mad he had to do a voiceover.

    Great grouping of stories

    This was one of the best collections that I’ve read. All the performers were outstanding.
