PEN America Best Debut Short Stories 2017
This anthology is the first volume of an annual collection that recognizes outstanding fiction debuts published in a print or online literary magazine.
The dozen winning stories take place in South Carolina and in South Korea, on a farm in the eighteenth century and among the cubicles of a computer-engineering firm in the present day.
They narrate ancient themes with current urgency: migration, memory, technology, language, love, ecology, identity, family. Together they act as a compass for contemporary literature; they tell us where we’re going.
