From the award-winning literary magazine Tin House comes an indispensable collection of established and emerging fiction stars.

In just four short years Tin House has established itself as the most eclectic, exciting, and popular literary magazine in America today-writings from its pages have already been honored in Best American Stories, Best American Essays, Best American Poetry, Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, and the Pushcart Prize Anthology. Bestial Noise is the first collection of Tin House fiction, showcasing today's masters of the short form-David Foster Wallace, Amy Hempel, Mary Gaitskill, Ron Carlson, Jim Shepard, Helen Schulman, Jonathan Lethem, and Lydia Davis, along with Tin House discoveries David Schickler, Nancy Reisman, and Julie Benesh. These extraordinary, vital stories are a primer for the current state of cutting-edge fiction and confirm why the Village Voice declared that ' Tin House may very well represent the future of literary magazines.'
