Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

McSweeney's began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected by other magazines. But after the first issue, the journal began to publish pieces primarily written with McSweeneys in mind. Since then, McSweeneys has attracted works from some of the finest writers in the country. Today, McSweeneys has grown to be one of the countrys best-read and widely circulated literary journals, with an expanding, loyal subscriber base and strong independent bookstore following. McSweeneys is committed to finding new voices — Gabe Hudson, Paul Collins, Neal Pollack, J. T. Leroy, John Hodgman, Amy Fusselman, Salvador Plascencia, Wells Tower, and Sean Wilsey are among those whose early work appeared in McSweeneys — and promoting the work of gifted but underappreciated writers, such as Lydia Davis and Stephen Dixon.

Synopsis:

Issue 38 is due to be a real beauty, with stories pulled in from all over the world—a grand tour, in prose, of a dozen places you have perhaps neglected to visit, up to now. There is Ariel Dorfman in Paris, with one eye on Chile, Bisi Adjapon in Ghana, Chanan Tigay with the Israeli Arabs of the Desert Scouts Brigade, Nathaniel Rich exploring the Northeast Kingdom, and Steven Millhauser somewhere far away, deep, deep in the woods—and more stories, besides, plus a comic and color photography and a cover that'll earn you admiring glances in whatever environment you're in. Don't even think about missing this one.
