With our biggest line-up in quite a while fifteen stories from writers like Yannick Murphy, Roddy Doyle, Ben Greenman, and Peter Orner McSweeney's 29 offers everything a good book should: there is jungle warfare, there are boomerang factories, there are tragedies and romances and animals it might not have been wise to bring home. There is also art on every damn page, and a finely die-cut cover, wrapped in several kinds of cloth, that will make other people want to grab this one right out of your hands, so watch out.
