McSweeney’s Issue 41

Dave Eggers

This latest lightning-lashed hardcover is a head-exploder from end to end - on the fiction front there’s Thomas McGuane and Aimee Bender, Deb Olin Unferth and Ryan Boudinot, ill-fated river trips and lovelorn robots and Hollywood super-agents bent on revenge; on the nonfiction side there are amazing accounts of upheaval and rebirth in Tehran and Mississippi and Mexico City and Riverside, California. There is full-color art all the way through, too, and a special section of Australian Aboriginal fiction, edited by Australia’s Chris Flynn, that is so good you won’t believe it. This one is overstuffed in the best summer (northern hemisphere) blockbuster fashion—let it into your life!
