  • The Better of McSweeney's Volume 2


The Better of McSweeney's, Volume II, in turn, features post-apocalyptic robberies, immigration dramas, speculative inventions, and naval disasters. There are tragically dysfunctional families and enjoyably dysfunctional families. There are movie stars and bears; there are medicine men and Roman centurions; there are pigs that are being raised in space. This collection is dedicated to Issues 11–20, and includes stories from Steven Millhauser, Chris Adrian, Wells Tower, Allison Smith, Tom Bissell, and Philipp Meyer. In short, this is a rollicking assortment of strange and wonderful contemporary literature, and a celebration of fiction at the dawn of the 21st century.
