The literary journal Zoetrope, founded in 1997 by film director Francis Ford Coppola, proved an instant and spectacular success with readers and critics nationwide. Its stories have garnered awards from such publications as Best American Short Stories, The O. Henry Award Prize Stories, and many more. And it won a National Magazine Award for fiction in 2001--the youngest magazine ever to do so.
A sequel to the successful first volume, this collection presents some of the best writing to have appeared in the magazine in the last two years, including stories and essays by Jennifer Egan, Pinckney Benedict, Peter Greenaway, Rick Moody, Francine Prose, and Toure, among others. In addition, two never-before-published stories commissioned exclusively for this volume appear here: one by Rick Bass and the other by Alicia Erian. The result is an exciting and vital collection, a must-have for readers of today's best writing.
