Description

McSweeney's Issue 21 is as full of great writing and clever details as ever, while physically more book-like than other issues. Inside, you'll find stories from Roddy Doyle, Miranda July and JC Oates, a host of new talents just waiting for you to discover them, and the triumphant return of Arthur Bradford, not to mention a priceless trove of letters sent to Ray Charles, confiscated by the son of his former secretary. It may also include some sheet music.show more
