1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each October at the PEN Gala, well-known authors take the stage of the Folger Shakespeare Library's Theatre to ponder the meaning of such universal mysteries as "obsession," illusion," first love," and more. Each author is given only three minutes or less to speak. The results have been unpredictable -- cleaver, confessional, inspiring, hilarious, profound, and all of them entertaining. Seventy-five essays have been transcribed for the first time, and comprise this unique anthology
PEN America best debut short stories( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's most acclaimed writers all got their start when an editor encountered their work for the first time and took a chance. This anthology celebrates twelve such moments of discovery, and is the first volume of an annual collection--launched alongside PEN's new Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers--that recognises outstanding fiction debuts published in North America. The dozen winning stories included here--selected this year by judges Kelly Link, Marie-Helene Bertino, and Nina McConigley--take place in South Carolina and in South Korea, on a farm in the eighteenth century and among the cubicles of a computer-engineering firm in the present day. They narrate ancient themes with current urgency: migration, memory, technology, language, love, ecology, identity, family. Together they act as a compass for contemporary literature; they tell us where we're going. Each work comes with an introduction by the editor who originally published it, explaining why he or she chose it. The commentaries provide insight into a process that often remains opaque to readers and aspiring writers, and offer a chance to showcase the vital work literary magazines do to nurture our boldest and most exciting new voices." --Publisher description
PEN America best debut short stories( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"PEN America Best Debut Short Stories 2018 celebrates twelve outstanding stories by today's most promising new fiction writers and the literary magazines that discovered them. The characters within these pages include a college dropout dressed up as Hercules at Disney World; a college graduate playing a prostitute in a ghost town in Montana; a father from Trinidad leading a double life on a temporary visa; and a housewife in Taipei perfectly performing her familial and marital duties while harboring secret desires. This year's selections were made by three award-winning writers, themselves innovators of the short story form: Jodi Angel, Lesley Nneka Arimah, and Alexandra Kleeman. Each work is accompanied by commentary from the editors who first published it, explaining what made the piece stand out from the submissions pile, and why they were moved to share it with readers."--provided by Amazon.com
