    One thought on “The Best American Essays 2000”

    1. This is the best BAE volume from 1986-2000, perhaps the best one I've read yet (I still have several in the early 2000s to finish before I complete the series). Alan Lightman chose an impressive array of authors, subjects, and styles. Of the twenty-one essays, eleven I'd happily return to. To seven I gave single check marks (a.k.a. worth another read), to three I gave double check marks (a.k.a. very fine), and one (Scott Russell Sanders's "The Force of Spirit") received the elusive triple check [...]

    2. As a pretty eclectic collection of essays, it was only to be expected that I had mixed results. There was a Wendell Berry essay that may just have changed my life (I'm definitely going to read more of him. I've had friends who recommended him for years and I never got around to it, but boy will I ever now). I wish I'd reviewed this before taking it back, because I'm going to forget the authors and which essay they belong to. There were some beautifully done explorations into various corners of t [...]

    3. Got this because my friend Mark Slouka has an essay in here, and I've always wanted to read Cheryl Strayed's "Heroin/e," yet the essays from André Aciman and Fred D'Aguiar were stunning surprises and I'll read/teach those in the future, for sure. Atwan's introductions are always worth reading and guest editor Alan Lightman points out in his introduction: "If the essayist has all the answers, then he isn't struggling to grasp, and I won't either." Agreed.
