Welcome to The Best American Essays

This blog features The Best American Essays Series from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Please note that this blog isn't ran by the publisher, and that this is merely a fan blog for the love of the series.

I've been fascinated by literary essays, and these books are what really hooked me to the genre along with the The Art of the Personal Essay: An Anthology from the Classical Era to the Present.

On this blog you will find book descriptions readily available from the back of the physical book itself, along with the table of contents containing the titles, the essayists, and the original publication where the essays were originally featured. And whenever possible, I put link to the actual essays whenever they are available for free on the original publishers' websites. And for some of the essays, you will find that the original publishers have went out of business - a sad truth for the literary world.

So I hope you enjoy this blog for what it has to offer, and I hope you fully enjoy the art of literary essays. In the future, this blog hopes feature discussion articles for every essay featured on the series. But until then, read an essay today. An essay a day will conserve your mind.
