From Dave Eggers: For this year’s edition of The Best American Nonrequired Reading, we wanted to expand the scope of the book to include shorter pieces, and fragments of stories, and transcripts, screenplays, television scripts -- lots of things that we hadn’t included before. Our publisher readily agreed, and so you’ll see that this year’s edition is far more eclectic in form than previous editions. Along the way to making the book, we also came across a variety of things that didn’t fit neatly anywhere, but which we felt should be included, so we conceived the front section, which is a loose Best American roundup of notable words and sentences from 2005. It is, like this book in general, obviously and completely incomplete, but might be interesting nevertheless.

3 February 2006 Plays and Playwrights 2006, the 7th volume in our annual series of anthologies, is due for release February 2006. This new collection will introduce you to some of the seasons best new plays: works by emerging playwrights that challenge the status quos of American life, that push the boundaries and definitions of traditional theatrical form, that explore and reflect the world in which we live. These plays, originally produced at venues such as Dixon Place, La MaMa, the American Living Room, Ice Factory, and the New York International Fringe Festival, are the work of more than a dozen fine young American writers.In Plays and Playwrights 2006 youll find: two comedies that consider the very serious (and oft neglected) subject of the place of art in society, two timely dramas that look at the human toll of war, two surprising and inventive pieces that give voice to members of the Great American Melting Pot, a pair of works that offer widely contrasting views of family values and personal relationships circa 2005, two compact one-acts that demonstrate conclusively the power of the ten-minute play, and two pieces that confront the alienation and dehumanization that afflict our high-tech society. (See enclosed for more details.) Plays and Playwrights 2006 will also include, for the first time a NEW FEATURE as an appendix. This section is a directory of new American plays produced in New York City which will provide a detailed view of the vitality and diversity of American dramatic literature. This should prove an invaluable resource to all those interested in current drama; indispensable to academics, producing organizations, theatre goers, and historians.

Every fourth page is a full-color figurative painting, each one by an excellent artist. The other pages have fiction on them, with only one color but lots of words including punched, pants, and Puerto — that's actually just the first page. After that, there are stories exploring animal-plant romances, psycho librarians, and passive-agressive ventriloquism. No fewer than two dictators appear as protagonists. And after all that, loosely glued to the inside back cover, there¹s a fifty-page booklet containing a harrowing excerpt from Chris Adrian¹s The Children¹s Hospital.. This is a handsome, handsome issue, brimming with fulfilling things.
