This book collects some of the best stories from the first ten issues of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, the literary journal that has become one of the country's most important and influential publications.

Homes, David Foster Wallace, Dave Eggers, Amanda Davis, George Saunders, Paul Collins, and William Vollmann, as well as many talented newcomers. Stories included here have been selected for The O.
