ABOUT THIS BOOK:
To commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of the journal called ?a key barometer of the literary climate” by The New York Times and twice honored with a National Magazine Award for fiction, here is The Best of McSweeney’s?a comprehensive collection of the most remarkable work from a remarkable magazine. Drawing on the full range of the journal thus far?from the very earliest volumes to our groundbreaking, Chris Ware?edited graphic novel issue to our most popular project yet, the full-on Sunday-newspaper issue known as San Francisco Panorama, The Best of McSweeney’s is an essential retrospective of recent literary history. With full-color contributions from some of the pioneering artists and illustrators featured in our pages over the years (Marcel Dzama, Art Spiegelman, and many more) and a breathtaking array of first-rate fiction (and some incredible nonfiction, too), this is a book to be pored over, and lasting proof that the contemporary short story is as vital as ever.(Publisher).
