A Collection of Contemporary NonfictionBook - 2016
Shorts--as these sharply focused pieces have come to be known-- represent an impressive range of voices, perspectives, sensibilities, and forms. Brief Encounters features the work of the emerging and the established--including Stuart Dybek, Roxanne Gay, Eduardo Galeano, Leslie Jamison, and Julian Barnes--arranged by theme to explore the human condition in ways intimate, idiosyncratic, funny, sad, provocative, lyrical, and unflinching.
