"[A] terrific and surprising collection of tales by a diverse group of writers . . . Count on them to transport you." USA Today The Best American Short Stories 2017 will be edited by Meg Wolitzer, who is "almost crushingly insightful; she doesn't just mine the contemporary mind, she seems to invade it" (San Francisco Chronicle), making her the perfect person to helm this literary time capsule of a collection.

Short stories aren't really my thing. I picked this up at library because I was in between books and thought, why not. Some if the stories were great and others I didn't get into. Overall, i enjoyed the experience. The Sonya Larson story was among the best for me. As we're the Jess Walter's and T.C Boyle stories.

A print-on-demand short story dispenser! Every airport should have one of these. Brilliant!

In "Are We Not Men?" T.C Boyle offers a snapshot of a commonplace man bumbling through a world with genetic modification on overdrive.
