Item description for McSweeney's Issue 21 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern) by Dave Eggers...
McSweeney's began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected from other magazines. Today, it attracts work from some of the finest writers in the country, including David Foster Wallace, Ann Cummins, Rick Moody, and William T. Vollmann. McSweeney's Issue 21 includes work by Roddy Doyle and Stephen Elliott, as well as the triumphant return of Arthur Bradford. There's also new stories (written by secretive and heretofore unknown authors) of beauty and acuity. Determined to find new voices, publish work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and push the literary form forward at all times, McSweeney's Issue 21 proves McSweeney's continued commitment to excellence.

Reviews - What do customers think about McSweeney's Issue 21 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern)?
Love it so far Aug 14, 2007
This is an excellent collection of short stories. Anyone who enjoys this form of literature should enjoy this collection.
Another A+ from McSweeney's Jan 25, 2007
From cover to cover (and especially with the special wraparound flap), this issue is a sparkling example of why McSweeney's is a gem in the literary world. In particular, I appreciated the random letters in their original form written to The Late Great Ray Charles.
And if you've never read a McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, treat yourself and buy this issue. You'll be addicted after reading it and spend all your beer money for more McSweeney's.
