The Better of McSweeney's, Volume 2 Issues 11-20 Synopsis

McSweeney's Quarterly Concern features every kind of writing you can imagine, plus a few brand new kinds. The Better of McSweeney's, Volume II, in turn, features post-apocalyptic robberies, immigration dramas, speculative inventions, and naval disasters. There are tragically dysfunctional families and enjoyably dysfunctional families. There are movie stars and bears; there are medicine men and Roman centurions; there are pigs that are being raised in space. This collection is dedicated to Issues 11-20, and includes stories from Steven Millhauser, Chris Adrian, Wells Tower, Allison Smith, Tom Bissell, and Philipp Meyer. In short, this is a rollicking assortment of strange and wonderful contemporary literature, and a celebration of fiction at the dawn of the 21st century.
