Dave Eggers had a dream. To produce a literary magazine that was different from the hundreds of other journals out there. It would be innovative, funny, exciting, inspiring and it would take the world by storm. That dream came true. What you hold in your hands is the best of the first ten issues of McSweeney's. Featuring the work of established writers as well as that of a new generation whose careers were launched by McSweeney's, this volume is a celebration of the very best writing to come out of America in recent years. Enjoy !
