Such excellent quotes - thank you for reproducing them here. I LOVE the Best American Short Story collections and have quite a few. I was struggling with how to cover them for Short Story Month and you've done it for me - so thanks!

Sneak peak, though - your mention of Barthelme is a nice prelude as I plan to talk about his Sixty Stories at some point this month. I know its not a "short story collection" per se - but to me, it is a seminal volume of short stories, much in the way Flannery O'Connor's A Good Man is Hard to Find should be required short story reading.
