Yet again, California we bring you your stories. Hand-plucked from literary journals, novels, agazines, and newspapers, this year's collection of contemporary fiction, nonfiction, and poetry insists that we see our state for what it truly is: a vibrant culture, hopeful yet disappointed, hungry for knowledge, for art, for the aroma of freshly picked strawberry fields and for city streets heady with possibility. The stories offered here believe in that California.

Each piece in this iteration is distinguished by a confident and intelligent voice that lepas from the page with veracity, originality, and tenderness. Among those voices are established writers such as Susan Straight, Robert Hass, David rains Wallace, and Joan Didion, as well as blooming writers like Shanthi Sekaran, Lysley Tenorio, Sylvia Linsteadt, and the winner of the 2012 James D. Houston Award Keenan Norris.
