News came this week about the guest editors for the 2018 Best American series volumes from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: “Among the biggest names to be featured as editors are Roxane Gay (Hunger), who will helm the Short Story collection; Cheryl Strayed (Wild), guest-editing the Travel Writing section; and Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker theater critic Hilton Als, who will oversee the Essays book. In addition, legendary food critic Ruth Reichl will edit the Best American Series’ first-ever book on Food Writing.” (Meantime, the 2017 volumes I purchased a couple of months ago are, of course, sitting in a TBR pile.)
