One thought on “The Best American Essays 2003

  1. I took me almost one year to just finish this book, because this was not easy reading and I needed time to digest each essay I have to say this is an excellent book almost all essays were excellent and offered me some kind of knowledge Some of them were filled with emotions and autobiographical notes that tasted like some intense short films The following essays are my favorite from the collection Lavender Andre Aciman this could be due to primacy effects, but this is the BEST essay of the book [...]


  2. It s really funny looking at the change in essay styles from the mid 80 s to the early 21st century Basically people dropped a lot of the word dropping and pretentious bullshit, and started writing funnier, accessible stuff I really the like the 2003 edition, both for the Anne Fadiman s selection of essays and her excellent introduction, where she talks about how she wanted to bust the series out of it s heavy use of essays from the New Yorker and Granta, then found that when it came down to he [...]


  3. I like this edition of Best American Essays because Anne Fadiman used her editorship to champion the expansive, muscular personal essay Best American Essays is one of the only places generally interested readers of the personal essay can reliably discover new essays and new writers each year, but in recent years, guest editors David Foster Wallace, David Brooks, Mary Oliver, Christopher Hitchens, etc have chased other preoccupations at the expense of the personal essay.Meantime, check out some o [...]


  4. There are times when writing seems like magic you re lifted out of yourself into somewhere that shows you the world in a new way So many of the essays in this book leave me breathless The three I have in mind so far are The Reporter s Kitchen, by Jane Kramer, Learning to Drive, by Katha Pollett, and Citizenship in Emergency, by Elaine Scarry The first two show how much can be explored through a single image okay, experience over time Scarry s essay got me thinking about national defense in a way [...]


  5. This BAE is quite good Among its strengths 10 of the 24 essays are read agains 11 of the 24 are by women Cheryl Strayed s 2013 BAE also has a respectable showing of women, suggesting yet again that, shockingly, female editors tend to give less of an edge to male writers than do male editors My two favorite essays from this collection are Atul Gawande s The Learning Curve, which I might use when I teach my next research writing class, and Francis Spufford s The Habit, a standout piece about readi [...]


  6. I ve never read essays before, but it was recommended I read Atul Gawande s The Learning Curve, which is all about the practice of medicine I found it uncomfortably true to life, but very interesting Now I m plowing through the rest of the essays, which so far have covered buying a bed, the search for the perfect lavender, and Martha Stewart.


  7. This was the only result of a search for Susan Sontag in the Sapporo library database.The highlights were Anne Fadiman s introductory essay, Adam Gopnik s Bumping Into Mr Ravioli, Cheryl Strayed s The Love of My Life, Donald Antrim s I Bought A Bed, and Rachel Cohen s Lost Cities.


  8. Anne Fadiman is a brilliant editor This volume is one of best in this series that is to say, the best of the best.



  9. I love reading essays, but hadn t done so for years until I picked up this book at a book sale Some of the essays were phenomenal It makes me want to subscribe to The New Yorker.


  10. I feel like a failure saying this, but these essays other than Anne Fadiman s introductory essay about choosing essays didn t work for me at all.Maybe I will try again another time.


  11. Anne Fadiman is a goddess All these intro essays are so fascinating to read from the point of view of how to write an essay about writing an essay Fadiman takes a not obvious approach.




  12. An inconsistent dynamic of essays for which I was searching to teach a college freshman English composition course I had a wide scope.
