Rare McSweeney's Quarterly Magazine collectible item. A pristine, unopened copy of the landmark 33rd Issue from the most innovative literary quarterly in America. One of the best Issues ever from McSweeney's, it was issued in a beautifully produced oversize laminated plastic wrap with titles and text on the cover and back. The plastic wrap is completely intact. Contributions by various authors and graphic artists. Printed on archival stock paper to the highest standards. Enclosed in protective clear plastic sheet. Without DJ, as issued. Presents McSweeney's Quarterly "San Francisco Panorama". A nostalgic and loving homage to Golden Age print journalism in our meretricious age of digital newspapers and other online aggregations. "A one-time-only, Sunday Edition-sized newspaper, the San Francisco Panorama. News (actual news, tied to the day it comes out), sports and arts coverage, and comics (sixteen pages of glorious, full-color comics, from Chris Ware and Dan Clowes and Art Spiegelman and many others besides), and a magazine and a weekend guide, and will basically be an attempt to demonstrate all the great things print journalism can (still) do, with as much first-rate writing and reportage and design (and posters and games and on-location Antarctic travelogues) as we can get in there. Expect journalism from Andrew Sean Greer, fiction from George Saunders and Roddy Doyle, dispatches from Afghanistan, and much, much more. We're going to try to sell this thing on the street in San Francisco, but it'll also go out to our subscribers and be in bookstores" (Dave Eggers). That's fourteen breathless and's, a record even for Eggers. The Series has proven itself to be the most consistently innovative and interesting literary magazine of its kind in America. Characterized by its editor's paradoxical mix of idolatry and iconoclasm, Eggers (and his collaborators) is offering a genuine alternative to the flavorless, politically correct mass and social media that have become predictable, boring, and irrelevant to serious readers and collectors of contemporary literature. An absolute "must-have" title for McSweeney's collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Issue still available online, is still in the publisher's unopened laminated plastic wrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Some of the most brilliant American writers and artists of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVE EGGERS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1934781487. $50.00
