The website, Essay Daily, has been publishing an essay per day (almost) since 2010. This collection provides a series of eclectic essays culled from that project, many of which demonstrate that an essay can be a number of things. Essays react, essays entertain, essays establish, essays contradict. They also beget illustrations, discussions, illuminations, and of course more essays. This big collection offers beautiful comics and reminiscences, fake interviews and real fencing, along with approachable, step-by-step, classroom and subway-car-friendly lit crit. This book clearly demonstrates that the essay is alive and well, kicking and evolving, grappling with its place in literature.
