McSweeney's Issue 56 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern) (Hardcover)
UNAVAILABLE: Backordered or Out-of-Print (But email us to search for a used copy.)
Issue 56 delivers new work from Michelle Tea, Jose Antonio Vargas, T. C. Boyle, Dantiel W. Moniz, Genevieve Hudson, Jincy Willett, to name a few, and a section of staggering fiction from emerging Nigerian writers soon to be household names, with an introduction by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. There are botched home invasions and perception-heightening witchcraft, disillusioned mailmen and playlists for the comatose, posthumous visits from lovers and nail-biting prison breaks.
And, if that weren't enough, this opulent hardcover issue also includes a captivating ten-page illustrated story by Rui Tenreiro that begins on the cover, and poems by Soviet-era absurdist Daniil Kharms, translated by Ilya Kaminsky and Katie Ferris. Time to cancel your plans-something more important has come up.
