McSweeney's Quarterly Concern #32: McSweeney's Issue 32: 2024 AD Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

McSweeney's began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected by other magazines. Since then, McSweeney's has attracted works from some of the finest writers in the country, including David Foster Wallace, Ann Cummins, Rick Moody, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Lethem, William T. Vollmann, and many new talents.

Synopsis:

Because it seemed important to know in advance, we've dedicated Issue 32 to an investigation of the world to come--expect a set of near-future stories, written by the likes of Anthony Doerr, Heidi Julavits, and Salvador Plascencia, each of 'em unearthing a different corner of life in the year 2024. This will be, we are sure, way more entertaining than waiting fifteen years for the real thing.
