Before Dave Eggers hit it big with A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and David Foster Wallace redefined the art of writing with such books as Infinite Jest and A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, they were contributing to Might magazine-a small-scale, big-impact publication that specialized in edgy, funny, deceptively wacky commentary on modern culture. Featuring articles ranging from "College is for Suckers" to "All About Iceland," this outstanding compendium will give readers a look at the earlier work of these bestselling writers-and one of the most interesting small magazines of our time.
