The Best of McSweeney's Volume 1
From literary outsider to most talked-about literary magazine in five years, McSweeney's has earned its right to be called a literary phenomenon. Founded and edited by Dave Eggers, this is the magazine that has made its mark with a line-up of authors that includes David Foster Wallace, George Saunders, Zadie Smith, and Rick Moody - all of whom are represented in this brilliant selection of stories from the first ten issues. The name McSweeney's is now synonymous with talent and originality, and The Best of McSweeney's Volume 1 presents a taste of the quality of writing that makes every issue of McSweeney's an eagerly anticipated event.
