Exactly half of the stories you'll read in issue 23 of "McSweeney's" are by brand-new writers; the other half are by writers already well known for their extraordinary gifts. All of these stories, however, are ambitious, and all of them are wonderful. Between these covers you'll find three schoolfriends attempting to eradicate stereotyping in their local shopping mall with their new venture, Black Hoodie Solutions; chaos and comfort in the wake of a hurricane; a letter from an estranged father to his son warning him of the agonies and ecstasies of sexual congress; artwork by Andrea Dezso, Brian McMullen and "McSweeney's" own Dave Eggers, and much more besides.
