Item description for McSweeney's Issue 19 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern) by Dave Eggers...

<i>McSweeney's</i> began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected from other magazines. Today, it has grown to be one of the country's best and largest-circulation literary journals, attracting works from some of the finest writers in the country, including David Foster Wallace, Ann Cummins, Rick Moody, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Lethem, William T. Vollmann, and many new talents. <I>McSweeney's</I> publishes on a roughly quarterly schedule, and each issue is markedly different from its predecessors in terms of design and editorial focus. It has grown to be one of the country's best and largest-circulation literary journals. The journal is committed to finding new voices, publishing work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and pushing the literary form forward at all times. We have no idea what Issue 20 will be.

Reviews - What do customers think about McSweeney's Issue 19 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern)?

Pamphlets better than mag  Feb 14, 2007
The reproductions of wartime pamphlets and the box they come in is worth the price alone. The mag itself wasn't nearly as interesting as the reproductions of:

- George W. Bush's dental records from 1973

- an RNC 1967 pamphlet called "How Your Horoscope Can Help the Republican Party Win!"

- the DOD's 1961 pamphlet "Fallout Protection: What to know and do about nuclear attack."

- the DOD's 1957 "Guide to the Middle East" which ironically contains the lines: "Traditionally, Americans believe in the right of all peoples to determine their own future. Our policy is to support the rights of Middle Eastern peoples without interfering in their internal affairs. We hope to promote peace among the middle Eastern states."

- a 1939 English pamphlet called "Some things you should know in case war should come" that gives information such as "water can only be applied to the bomb itself in the form of a fine spray, for hich a handpump with a length of hose and special nozzle are needed. If you throw a bucket of water on a burning incendiary bomb it will explode and throw burning fragments in all directions."

- a 1918 YMCA pamphlet called "The Stuff That Wins" which urges young soldiers to "not dissipate their energy with gambling, women, or drink."

- correspondence between a man who was arrested for fornication with a black woman out of wedlock and his family in 1911

And a BUNCH of other incredible stuff.
