Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

McSweeney's has grown to be one of the country's best and largest-circulation literary journals. It's committed to finding new voices, publishing work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and pushing the literary form forward at all times. McSweeney’s Issue 28 explores the state of the fable in eight illustrated books, which — in the hands of authors including Daniel Alarcón, Sheila Heti, and Nathan Englander — contains egg boys, irresistible boxes, and a man who keeps meeting himself.

Synopsis:

In eight illustrated books, elegantly held together in a single beribboned case, McSweeneys 28 explores the state of the fable—those astute and irreducible allegories one doesnt see so much anymore in our strange new age, when everyone is wild for the latest parable or apologue but cant find time for anything else. Featuring fable-length work by Daniel Alarcón, Sheila Heti, and Nathan Englander, and different illustrators for each piece, McSweeneys 28 promises to offer many nights worth of fine reading.

love everything McSweeney's, the concepts they come up with take the reading experience to a whole new level, this issue is not only an engaging collection of stories, but the presentation is a work of art
