McSweeney's Issue 59 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern)
Mcsweeney's Literary Arts Fund
McSweeney's rings in the 2020's with a brand-new, oddly-shaped, paperback issue of our National Magazine Award-winning Quarterly Concern. Gaze inside this short covered book to find: stories about cultish acting classes and human remains and eerie parties in dusty parlors; the conclusions of Issue 57's cliffhanger stories by Oyikan Braithewaite, Brian Evanson, and Mona Awad; Essays on historic ACLU cases by the likes of Jacqueline Woodson and Charlie Jane Anders; letters from Brandon Hobson on an armadillo incarnation of Andrew Jackson and Jenny Slate on the indignity of game nights; a spread of full-color photographs by Tommy Kha; and so much more. Join us, hand-in-hand, as we enter a whole new era.
