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.
