Best American Short Stories--2001

Read this piecemeal over the last month or so--some, of course, are fascinating and beautiful, and some are not really my style, but I still have a feeling they might be great to someone else out there.

My favorite thing about this particular edition is that the "guest editor" was Barbara Kingsolver, and I love her. So it was fun to get to read the stories and think of what her opinions of them would be--what she would say was the nugget of truth behind each story.

Oh, and for what it's worth, my favorite story was probably "Boys." But the whole thing was good, as is only to be expected!
