Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"McSweeney's" began as a literary journal which published only works rejected from other magazines, but after the first issue, the journal began to publish pieces written with "McSweeney's" in mind, attracting works from some of the finest writers in the country and many new talents. The journal is committed to finding new voices, publishing work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and pushing the literary form forward at all times.

Synopsis:

If issues were anniversaries, this one would have to be printed on silver plates. You could melt it in some sort of forge and then pound it on an anvil until you had a set of earrings. Instead, it's a hardcover book with stories by a few of our old favorites—Steven Millhauser, Joyce Carol Oates, Padgett Powell—and more than half a dozen others, investigating everything from ape men to unlucky island-hoppers to what happens when Canadians go AWOL in Bosnia. Pound this one on an anvil and it'll pound you right back.

Featuring three different cover types, and illustrations of various horses by Amy Jean Porter
