    1. Picked this up at the Cornell bookstore, and took a long time to get through it. I can't say I am waiting with baited breath for America's future fiction if these are the best young novelists. There were some impressive pieces, I thought, particularly those by Dara Horn, Rattawutt Lapcharoensap and ZZ Packer, but the rest were either inconsequential or left me disquieted about the characters and ideas.1) Daniel Alarcon -- A village boy moves to the city, clerks at a store, gets an unexpected vis [...]

    2. A great collection. It would be interesting to compare it to the New Yorker’s 20 Under 40 list (many authors are on both). I think one or two sentence reviews for each story is a good idea, yes? Note: I read these out of order, and am coming back to review many of the stories after some time has passed. “The King Is Always Above The People” by Daniel Alarcón: I didn’t love this one, which was about a boy who gets a girl pregnant, then leaves town only to come back.“Parakeets” by Kev [...]

    3. Granta 97, the second of the Best Young American Novelists, is another fantastic collection from the British journal of great contemporary writing. They already acknowledge the various ways in which, with ten years of hindsight, they've already had to reevaluate the mission they originally set out to accomplish. Namely, that there are many authors they completely missed in the first issue, that there was a goal they missed by excluding some of the even more talented even younger writers with the [...]

    4. Quite a good collection of short stories with no duds, and some truly excellent entries that make the whole very worthwhile. I dug 'Exile', 'Passover in New Orleans' was quite excellent and very interesting, I loved 'Valets' for some reason, and 'From the Diaries of Lenny Abramov' is a fantastic little number that got me thinking I ought to track down some of Shteyngart's stuff. 'Where East Meets West' did a fantastic job of creating a sympathetic character that I still disliked intensely, a gre [...]

    5. A great book to read and uncover new authors and new reading pleasures. Published in 2007 its clear that some of the authors have gone on to be extremely successful like Shteyngart or Foer while others I had never heard of before. While some of the stories seem affected or forced many are really brilliant. My personal favourite was one by Karen Russell about American Presidents reincarnated as horses in a stable which was very funny, moving and with an ending that matches steve macqueen from the [...]

    6. Okay, I guess that since this is titled "The Best of Young American Novelists" and not "The Best of Young American Writers" I probably shouldn't gripe about the novel excerpts, most of which felt exactly like what they are: pieces cut out of a (probably) soon-to-be-published larger work. In general, though, a decent representation. Works that stood out for me: Brockmeier, Doerr, Freudenberger, Iweala, Lapcharoensap, Li, Russell, Wray.(And now, a moment of silence to mourn my lost youth. I will n [...]

    7. Sure, you've got to take them with a grain of salt, but I love Best lists. Also, checking out the lauded competition and deciding whether they deserve to be lauded. This anthology happens to include some of my favorite "young American" writers (K-Brock, Judy Budnitz, Yiyun), though maybe not their best pieces. The Maile Meloy story was pretty fucking awesome, and I'm now intrigued by Dara Horn, who I'd never heard of. And though I was lukewarm to maybe half the pages in this book, there was only [...]

    8. I'm currently picking through this collection of short stories that these young writers wrote in the thirty days after they were placed on the Granta Young American Novelists list. I went to a reading recently where Akhil Sharma (one of the chosen) basically said that only three of the writers in these pages are worthy of the title. I've only read two of the stories -- Karen Russell's and Rattawut Lapcharoensap's -- both of which I loved (full disclosure: I was in the same program as Russell so [...]

    9. Looking for a new book? Tired of the same ten writers? Well, pick this guy up. I found this volume invaluable in helping me discover new writers. Beyond that, the stories in this collection are just amazingly well-written. Granta is always top-notch, but they really went above and beyond in this collection to get the very best stories from the very best young novelists writing in the U.S. today. Because of this book, I discovered Maile Meloy and Nell Freudenberger, just to name two. This is a gr [...]

    10. The quality isn't entirely consistent, but when it's good, it's very good. I was particularly impressed by Brockmeier, Doerr, Freudenberger, Lapcharoensap, Meloy, and Russell, and the novel excerpts from Budnitz and Horn intruiged me. Too bad Foer's and Krauss's (the only two authors I had actually read a full book of before) were disappointing. A good introduction to many authors I didn't know and also a good inspiration to step up my game. I could still make the age bracket when they release t [...]

    11. Like most collections of short stories, this book is uneven. I didn't like the ads at all; I mean, what's cool about reading a "sponsored" book? That's right, I forgot, it's a literary magazine and so what? Then it's alright the sponsors thing?Notwithstanding, there are some really good stories. I liked Jonathan Safran Foer, Cristopher Coake, Nicole Krauss (love her :D) and Gary Shteyngart made me laugh. There is one more I forgot. And it's way too long

    12. Come in tutte le raccolte di racconti ci sono alti e bassi. Sicuramente il racconto che mi è piaciuto di più è quello di Karen Russell, che avevo amato già ne "Il collegio di Santa Lucia per giovinette allevate dai lupi".

    13. Worth it for the David Foster Wallace short story alone, Incarnations of Burned Children.Weird because he's such a wordy Pynchon acolyte, but this story is just two pages long. Devastatingly economical.

    14. I'm not sure this is a book? Isn't it a magazine? But, this might be my favorite fiction anthology so far. I really like looking at the pictures of the authors and reading their bios. They're so young.

    15. Embarrassingly I forgot to read this volume, and skipped to the next issue directly. I have a hard time sitting down to fiction lately.
