Description

Best of McSweeney's: Deluxe Edition Hardcover.

UNIQUE STEPHEN KING ITEM! Deluxe Set features a Cigar Box of goodies, including a Stephen King Newspaper - published especially for this set - on the 2009 World Series. See pictures for this unique King Newspaper.

To commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of the journal called “a key barometer of the literary climate” by the New York Times and twice honored with a National Magazine Award for fiction, here is The Best of McSweeney’s—a comprehensive collection of the most remarkable work from a remarkable magazine. Drawing on the full range of the journal thus far—from the very earliest volumes to our groundbreaking, Chris Ware–edited graphic novel issue to our most popular project yet, the full-on Sunday-newspaper issue known as San Francisco Panorama, The Best of McSweeney’s is an essential retrospective of recent literary history. With full-color contributions from some of the pioneering artists and illustrators featured in our pages over the years (Marcel Dzama, Art Spiegelman, and many more) and a breathtaking array of first-rate fiction (and some incredible nonfiction, too), this is a book to be pored over, and lasting proof that the contemporary short story is as vital as ever.

Along with a 624-page hardcover, this special, slipcased deluxe edition includes a custom cigar box filled with the following extras:

  • A broadsheet comics section from the newspaper of your dreams, with work by Chris Ware, Adrian Tomine, and many more
  • A tiny hardcover fable by Nathan Englander
  • A catalog for plural clothing, designed to be worn by no fewer than two people at a time by Brian McMullen
  • A lost novel-fragment from Michael Chabon
  • Stephen King’s baseball reportage in his own published newspaper!
  • A rearrangeable story by Robert Coover, printed on playing cards
  • A collaborative novella by Ann Beattie and Harry Mathews
  • Postcards by Ian Huebert

McSweeney’s began in 1998 as a literary journal that published only works rejected by other magazines. That rule was soon abandoned, and since then McSweeney’s has attracted work from some of the finest writers in the country, including Stephen King, Denis Johnson, Jonathan Franzen, William T. Vollmann, Rick Moody, Joyce Carol Oates, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Lethem, Michael Chabon, Ben Marcus, Susan Straight, Roddy Doyle, T. C. Boyle, Steven Millhauser, Gabe Hudson, Robert Coover, Ann Beattie, and many others. At the same time, the journal continues to be a major home for new and unpublished writers; we’re committed to publishing exciting fiction regardless of pedigree.

McSweeneys hard cover and cigar box, slipcased. Hard cover 624 pages. New and Sealed.
