Item description for McSweeney's Issue 25 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern) by Dave Eggers, John Garlow, Ira Dilworth, Rosemary Neering, Ira Dilworth, Daniel Romer, Sylvia Plath, Erika Sausverde & Szaulius Ambrazas...

If issues were anniversaries, this one would have to be printed on silver plates. You could melt it in some sort of forge and then pound it on an anvil until you had a set of earrings. Instead, it's a hardcover book with stories by a few of our old favorites?Steven Millhauser, Joyce Carol Oates, Padgett Powell?and more than half a dozen others, investigating everything from ape men to unlucky island-hoppers to what happens when Canadians go AWOL in Bosnia. Pound this one on an anvil and it'll pound you right back.

Featuring three different cover types, and illustrations of various horses by Amy Jean Porter

Reviews - What do customers think about McSweeney's Issue 25 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern)?

I am not sure if I liked it or not  Mar 4, 2008
I am conflicted about this one, some stories were absolute junk, and others had tremendous promise of prose and story that they sucked you in only to fail to deliver (peacekeeper and naming of the island). None actually seemed to have a point. It s as if they were ideas for stories or screenplays that we couldn't figure out how to satisfactory bring to conclusion. That said however I read the whole dammed thing!, so something was working right !. Production values on the book are extremely high, but again I couldn't figure out the connection between the artwork theme and the stories! Am I thinking too hard? Probably.
