My “Best American” Moment.

Houghton Mifflin is starting to publish this year’s editions of its Best American series (Best American Essays, Best American Sports Writing, etc), and I’m proud to say that my essay, “Keeping Faith,” originally published in the July/August 2007 issue of The Atlantic, is included in this year’s edition of the Best American Spiritual Writing. I received a copy of the collection today, and skimmed some of it this afternoon. Never mind my essay, this year’s edition includes great stuff from Pico Iyer, John Updike, Richard John Neuhaus, and Heather King, among others. Recommended on their behalf!


  1. Congratulations!!! Neuhaus, Heather King….you’re in there with people who write about religion and spirituality for their living.
    and some Wendell Berry to boot.

  2. You’re receiving the credit you deserve, Adam. I look forward to congratulating you on your future achievements as well.

  3. Thanks to all of you. I’d actually meant to close the comment on this, so it’s really a pleasant surprise to read these. Vivian – I hope we’ll see you soon in Shanghai.
