Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Called a three-part exercise in inspired restriction--of author, of content, and of form--this collection features a section of poetry, a list of unused story premises by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and a glimpse into the legendary Oulipians by the president of France.

Synopsis:

McSweeneys began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected from other magazines. Today, it attracts work from some of the finest writers in the country, including David Foster Wallace, Ann Cummins, Rick Moody, and William T. Vollmann. McSweeney's Issue 21 includes work by Roddy Doyle and Stephen Elliott, as well as the triumphant return of Arthur Bradford. There's also new stories (written by secretive and heretofore unknown authors) of beauty and acuity. Determined to find new voices, publish work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and push the literary form forward at all times, McSweeney's Issue 21 proves McSweeney's continued commitment to excellence.
