The best American short stories 2012 : selected from U. S. and Canadian magazines ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 690 libraries worldwide
Tom Perrotta explains in his introduction that "all of [these stories] took me somewhere I didn't expect to go, and jolted me into that state of heightened awareness and emotional receptivity that's one of the great rewards of reading good fiction." The characters in these stories seek to discover something lacking in their life. Their stories take sharp and surprising turns and often reach dazzling conclusions. In Nathan Englander's "What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank," a playful discussion between two married couples veers into darker territory, exposing a secret that might have been better left unspoken. Taiye Selasi writes a portrait of a motherless girl on the cusp of pubescence in Africa, where womanhood may not be something to be celebrated. "What's Important is Feeling: by Adam Wilson gives us a window onto a movie set where the narrator aches for something cinematic to happen in his life. Roxane Gay's "North Country" introduces us to an unlikely couple who circle each other in a wary dance of approach and avoidance. An unexpected visitor with a brown glass bottle kicks off a wonderfully strange fable about how we look at ourselves in Steven Millhauser's "Miracle Polish." Full of clear, idiosyncratic voices and intriguing points of view, this multifaceted collection will reward readers. And, as Perrotta unapologetically states, "By any standard, this year's batch of stories is pretty damn good."

Nora and Fern are just like any other mother and daughter - their tumultuous relationship marked by brooding silences and curt exchanges. Fern has never really forgiven her mother for detonating their nuclear family in the process of coming out as a lesbian and replacing Fern's father with her lover, Jeanne. For Nora, Fern is an enigma - incomprehensible, unfindable. Their story is a contemporary one, in which mothering is a mapless journey and children are left to form themselves in the shadows cast by idiosyncratic parenting. Here too is the reality that perfectly reasonable people will find some way to throw a wrench into the smooth, well-oiled workings of their lives. Nora's relationship with Jeanne has settled into domestic stability, triggering in Nora a familiar restlessness that leads to an affair. When Fern intuits her mother's indiscretion, she looks to the two people she depends on most: her uncle Harold and her best friend, Tracy, who now has the overwhelming task of raising a baby. As Fern begins to take on more of the baby's care herself, she discovers some of the powerful ambiguities of parental love - and starts to find her way back to her own mother. [This book] shows us the way a family reconfigures itself as unexpected changes come its way - and how, no matter what shape it takes, it remains a family. -Dust jacket
