Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Our laurels went unrested on for this one: Issue 34 features new stories of shipwrecks and kidnappings and bad vacations by (among others) Anthony Doerr, Daniel Handler, and T. C. Boyle, new letters about wine and Hawaii from John Hodgman and Sarah Vowell, twenty-one dead-on self-portraits drawn by the likes of Michael Martone, Michel Gondry, and Sarah Silverman, and, beyond all this, in a standalone volume, Nick McDonell's stunning exploration of the latest iteration of the war in Iraq—a ground-level account from within the 1st Cavalry Division. The whole thing weighs in at just under 400 pages, and comes in its own custom-made double-sleeve. It is, without a doubt, a beaut.

Synopsis:

After a year of experiments, we're returning to our roots--Issue 34 features a huge book of new fiction from the likes of Anthony Doerr and T.C. Boyle, with stories of shipwrecks and kidnappings and reporting in New Orleans, as well as a variety of other surprises. And included, too, in a second book dedicated to it alone, is Nick McDonell's stunning long-form nonfiction exploration of the latest iteration of the war in Iraq--a gorgeous piece of reporting from within the 1st Cavalry Division that we're very excited to be bringing out. Altogether, there's something in here to make anybody happy--we are aiming to leave no reader disgruntled with this one.
