McSweeney's Issue 23
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Exactly half of the stories you'll read in issue 23 of "McSweeney's" are by brand-new writers; the other half are by writers already well known for their extraordinary gifts. All of these stories, however, are ambitious, and all of them are wonderful. Between these covers you'll find three schoolfriends attempting to eradicate stereotyping in their local shopping mall with their new venture, Black Hoodie Solutions; chaos and comfort in the wake of a hurricane; a letter from an estranged father to his son warning him of the agonies and ecstasies of sexual congress; artwork by Andrea Dezso, Brian McMullen and "McSweeney's" own Dave Eggers, and much more besides. Featuring new stories by Roddy Doyle and Ann Beattie, and introducing some of the hottest new names to watch, "McSweeney's Issue 23" is exciting and essential reading.

Author Biography

Originally a small journal begun by Dave Eggers to publish work rejected by other publications, McSweeney's is today one of America's best and most widely circulated literary magazines. Its compilers are committed to finding new voices, publishing the work of gifted but under-appreciated writers, and pushing the literary form forward at all times. Published on a roughly quarterly schedule, each issue of McSweeney's is unique in both design and content.
