THE BEST AMERICAN NONREQUIRED READING 2017An eclectic mix of readings that includes everything from articles to tweets


Edited by Sarah Vowell. Best-selling author Sarah Vowell worked with students of the 826 Valencia writing lab to select an eclectic mix of "nonrequired"—but academically valuable—reading, including short stories, articles, poetry, book excerpts, book reviews, comics, tweets, songs, and even an excerpt from a supreme court case. This edition highlights such work as "Fable" by Teju Cole, an excerpt from Maximum Sunlight by Meagan Day, "The Diary of a Gulag Prison Guard" by Ivan Chistyakov, selected tweets from @WernerTwertzog, "You'll Be Back" by Lin-Manuel Miranda from the Hamilton Songbook, an excerpt from Utah, Petitioner v. Edward Strieff Jr., "Woman Fries and Eats Pet Goldfish After Fight with Husband" by Christine Rhein, and more. Appendix. Houghton Mifflin. 375 pages.
