As indicated, this book does contain the Best American Magazine Writing 2019. All seventeen stories are winners or finalists in prestigious writing competitions.
The stories are all non-fiction. The subjects vary from porn presidents to life in prison to end of life choices.
My personal favorite is “How to be an Artist” that contains 35 rules to make a life for yourself in art. I am still imagining what my life totem would look like. Obviously, it would have quite a few books incorporated in it—just like my life.
If you enjoy watching documentaries or news magazine shows, Best American Magazine Writing 2019 is a good choice. The stories are interesting and varied. 4 stars!
Thanks to Columbia University Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
