Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Founded in 1999, Tin House's mission was to create a literary magazine without the stuffy, elitist reputation that afflicts so much of the genre. The only literary journal with a recipe for its own martini, Tin House quickly established itself as one of the most exciting, eclectic, and popular literary magazines in America, regularly honored in anthologies like Best American Stories, Best American Essays, Best American Poetry, The O. Henry Prize Stories, and the Pushcart Prize anthologies. Best of Tin House celebrates six years of the magazine and wonderful storytelling.

Authors include James Salter, Deborah Eisenberg, Denis Johnson, Aimee Bender, Steven Millhauser, Steve Almond, Amy Bloom, Pinckney Benedict, Robert Olen Butler, Elizabeth Tallent, Mark Jude Poirier, Marshall N. Klimasewiski, Ryan Harty, Anthony Swofford, Amanda Eyre Ward, and others.

Review:

"Named after the Portland, Oregon, Victorian house in which its main office is located, Tin House magazine was founded in 1999 by Oregon publishing mogul and activist Win McCormack. Over the last seven years, the magazine has gone on to publish some of the biggest names in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. This cream-of-the-crop anthology consists of 27 short stories culled over the last four years, and follows up the magazine's previous anthology, Bestial Noise. It includes pieces from Aimee Bender, Deborah Eisenberg, Denis Johnson, Martha McPhee, Steven Millhauser, James Salter, Julia Slavin and many others. As the foreword from Dorothy Allison puts it: 'Here you will find complicated, deep portraits of the human that sing of worth and hope and endurance.' The cover design is fairly generic compared with the competition (i.e., McSweeney's), but what's inside is anything but." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Tin House may very well represent the future of literary magazines." Village Voice

Review:

"Tin House stands at the top of the list of quarterlies publishing today." Rick Moody

Review:

"Tin House has quickly become one of the country's most noticed literary magazines....Colorful, lively, loud, and often sexy." Kirkus Reviews
