The Best American Essays 2012The Best American Essays 2012 by Robert Atwan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


As with any anthology, this is a mixed bag, but since it gathers the best essays published by American magazines in 2011, the collection is strong and worth reading. There are several essays here that are very thought-provoking ("The Crazy State of Psychiatry," "Paper Tigers," and "Who are You and What are You Doing Here?") and some that are poignant ("The Good Short Life," "You Owe Me," and "My Father/My Husband"). Also there are some that just interesting and fascinating ("The Accidental Universe" and "Vanishing Act"). Some strong writing and great food for thought.
