McSweeney’s Issue 30

McSweeney’s Issue 30

McSweeney’s is always fun. Issue 30 is the Forge-Ahead/Throwback issue, and it resembles in its shape and design the earliest issues, which were, and are, nonsensical and sharp. And they published an amazing array of authors, from the most famous to the undiscovered. This issue has eleven excellent stories, including one by Wells Tower, whose story collection,  Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned, I just coincidentally picked up at the library. Look for a post on it soon.

The actor Michael Cera has his first published story here, Pinecone; I enjoyed it. All of the stories here possess strong, contemporary voices. McSweeney’s is always a joy to read all the way through. Grade: B+
