Item description for McSweeney's Issue 18 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern) by Dave Eggers...

Presents a new compilation of writings from the popular literary journal, which began in the 1998 as a small literary journal that published only works rejected from other magazines, including an excerpt from Edmund White's new memoir My Hustlers, as well as works by Jonathan Lethem, William T. Vollmann, David Foster Wallace, Rick Moody, and many new talents.

Publishers Description
Even beyond Edmund White's youthful hustler, Joyce Carol Oates's fatherly killer, and Roddy Doyle's Rwandan refugee, Issue 18 will not stay at home. Bears, clouds, assassinations, and demons lurk in a high-concept labyrinth of stories. And for those who have decided that the written word is simply too static a medium for their active lifestyle, we'll be inserting the first issue of a new DVD magazine called Wholphin, which includes films by Spike Jonze, David O. Russell, Miranda July, and the National Clean Up, Paint Up, Fix Up Bureau.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
