LITERATURE

"And for God's sake, don't let me ever hear you say, 'I can't read fiction. I only have time for the truth.' Fiction is the truth, fool! Ever hear of 'literature'? That means fiction too, stupid." -John Waters

  1. McSweeney's #35

    McSweeney's Quarterly Concern Volume 35

    $20.00

    With tremendous new stories from Steven Millhauser and Roddy Doyle, an epic, genre-shattering novella from Hilton Als, and a really excellent special section on Norway's finest writers (featuring not just Per Petterson but also Kid Icarus and a woman named Blind Margjit)—along with, probably, correspondence from a man we can't yet name and an unbelievable disappearing-ink cover done by Jordan Crane—Issue 35 is a full-to-bursting edition in the tradition of the best ones McSweeney's has ever done. For several hundred pages of unrivaled summer reading, this is your book. Learn More

  4. McSweeney's #41

    McSweeney's Quarterly Concern Volume 41

    $27.00

    Our latest lightning-lashed hardcover is a head-exploder from end to end—on the fiction front there’s Thomas McGuane and Aimee Bender, 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.

  5. McSweeney's #42

    McSweeney's Quarterly Concern Volume 42

    $26.00

    With the help of guest editor Adam Thirlwell (author of Kapow!,Visual Editions), Issue 42 is a monumental experiment in translated literature—twelve stories taken through six translators apiece, weaving into English and then back out again, gaining new twists and textures each time, just as you'd expect a Kierkegaard story brought into English by Clancy Martin and then sent into Dutch by Cees Nooteboom before being made into English again by J.M. Coetzee to do. Learn More
