LITERATURE

    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
