In the tradition of Best of American Short Stories and Langston Hughes's classic The Best Short Stories by Black People comes Everyday People: The Color of Life, a dazzling collection of contemporary short fiction showcasing a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic ensemble of contemporary writers.

It was important for the editor of Everyday People to present an anthology that celebrates marginalized voices. As sych, the contributors assembled for this project represent a spectrum of cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and homelands. Everyday People includes writers from the UK, the Philippines, China, Africa, and the Dominican Republic, writers who are Native American, African-American, Asian-American, Latino, etc. The wide range of writing styles, techniques, themes, and positions on display will have high appeal for both short story lovers and those who simply want to read from a different perspective.

Contributors include: Mia Alvar, Nana Brew-Hammond, Glendaliz Camacho, Alexander Chee, Junot Díaz, Michael A. Gonzales, Marcus J. Guillory, Mitchell S. Jackson, Yiyun Li, Allison Mills, Courttia Newland, Jason Reynolds, Nelly Rosario, Hasanthika Sirisena, and Brandon Taylor.

Note: Proceeds from sales will benefit the Rhode Island Writers Colony, a non-profit organization which serves to provide space for speculation, production, and experimentation of works and projects for and by writers of color.
