Edited by The New Yorker'39;s much-loved Adam Gopnik, this year'39;s Best American Essays continues the laudable tradition of collecting the finest essays, "judiciously selected from countless publications" (Chicago Tribune), ensuring that the 2008 edition is another "kick-ass anthology" (Booklist). Contributors include Albert Goldbarth, Anthony Lane, Louis Menand, Ander Monson, and others.

Adam Gopnik is the author of Paris to the Moon and Through the Children's Gate and is a contributor to The New Yorker. He lives in New York City with his wife and two children. His most recent book is Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin, Lincoln and Modern Life, a comparison about how those men changed our nation with their history-making actions.

Robert Atwan is the series editor of The Best American Essays. He recently edited Divine Inspiration, a volume of world poetry on the Gospels.
