From Lee Gutkind, the “Godfather behind creative narrative nonfiction” (Vanity Fair), and the staff of the landmark literary journal Creative Nonfiction comes this fresh collection of fact-based personal narratives, mined from literary blogs, ‘zines, and other fringe publications. In “My Glove: A Biography,” Stefan Fatsis, author of Word Freak and a Wall Street Journal reporter, traces the history of his baseball glove ― “the one thing I would be devastated to lose, my last, best connection to the baseball that defined my life as a kid” ― as he relinquishes it to the glove designer at Rawlings for an overhaul. Heidi Julavits, editor ofThe Believer, imagines a future in which book-related fatalities ― “Death of the intellect is one thing, but actual death is quite another” ― revolutionize the writer’s market. This new volume of The Best Creative Nonfiction continues to engage and delight with exceptional work from writers old and new.
