Reviews - What do customers think about The Better of McSweeney's, Volume 1?

No review yet? Blasphemy  Jan 30, 2006
Let me lay it out for you:

McSweeneys is, hands down, the greatest literary magazine going today. Every issue is unique and beautifully published and all the best writers in english are represented from artsy hip authors (David Foster Wallace, Stephen Dixon, Lydia Davis, etc.) to mainstream best sellers (Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, etc.)

This book is a collection of their favorite work from the first 10 issues. If you hvaen't read the first 10 issues, go and buy this. The first 10 are pretty rare and go for 100 dollars or more on ebay. But luckily you can get a good chunk of the stories in this thick and excellent collection.
