Item description for McSweeney's Issue 26 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern) Three Part Book Set by Dave Eggers...
McSweeney's began in 1998 as a literary journal edited by Dave Eggers that published only works rejected from other magazines. But after the first issue, the journal began to publish pieces written with McSweeney's in mind. Soon after, McSweeney's attracted 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 other talents, both established and upcoming. The journal is committed to finding new voices, publishing work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and pushing the literary form forward at all times. Each issue of McSweeney's is markedly different from its predecessors in design and editorial focus.
