Description

This new and brilliant issue of "McSweeney's" comes in three parts, held together by a magnet. In the first, poets including Michael Ondaatje and Denis Johnson initiate poet-chains, picking a poem of their own and one by another poet, who then does the same, and so on. In the second, F.

Author information

Originally a small journal begun by Dave Eggers to publish work rejected from other publications, McSweeney's is today one of America's best and most widely circulated literary magazines. Its compilers are committed to finding new voices, publishing the work of gifted but underappreciated writers, and pushing the literary form forward at all times. Published on a roughly quarterly schedule, each issue of McSweeney's is unique in both design and content.show more
