Three Recent Hilary Masters' Pieces Land on Best American Essays' Notable Lists

Three pieces by Carnegie Mellon University English Professor Hilary Masters have been included on three of the past four Best American Essays' Notable Lists.  The list annually features a selection of the year's outstanding essays of "literary achievement that show an awareness of craft and forcefulness of thought."

The 2013 Notable List contained Masters' "Amelia Earhart's Last Landing," which was originally published in the Sewanee Review. 2011's list included "Looking Back," published in Provincetown Arts, and the 2010 edition listed "In the Cards," which first appeared in the Prairie Schooner.
