    1 thought on “McSweeney's #43”

    1. Eh. Uh. Ummm. Yeah, so, about once every other year I buy a copy of McSweeney's. The design is always topnotch. The writers are well-known and impressive. And somehow when it all comes together it feels a little lesser than it should. I've got to assume that has to do with the editorial choices to combine things the way they do. No bad stories. No bad writing. Just nothing that ever really shines and the pieces never seem to compliment one another. A solid level of quality, but nothing unexpecte [...]

    2. I didn't really enjoy any of the stories in this issue. None were particularly bad either, just nothing jumped out at me and screamed 'this is actually really good' either. The book of fiction from South Sudan was interesting because it isn't something I'd normally seek out to read, and based on this small sample isn't something I'd be likely to seek out again, but it was still worth reading.I've felt this way about the last few years of McSweeney's actually. When I first started subscribing abo [...]

    3. This is one of the slimmest issues of McSweeney's yet (although it is packaged with another anthology), but it's also one of the more focused. I loved the short story by TC Boyle, a writer I shouldn't be ignoring. There are also two terrific non-fiction pieces; one a young woman's accounting of visiting her father in prison (he's been convicted of supplying money to terrorists, despite the fact that the organization he supported was also receiving funds from USAID at the same time), and the othe [...]

    4. Ha, I didn't know you could review journals on , but then why not, I guess. This issue of McSweeney's was pretty solid, though I have to say I enjoyed the letters and the nonfiction pieces much more than the fiction pieces this time around. The long piece at the end, chronicling the leadup to the uprising in Tripoli, was especially great. I can't imagine what it must have been like for the author to conduct all of those interviews right when he did, putting himself in some danger, too, and havin [...]

    5. McSweeney's 43 is another fantastic collection of short fiction and nonfiction. My favorite story from this collection was TC Boyle's "Burning Bright," a piece filled with foreboding and a slow-building dread. There's also a great essay by a young woman whose father was caught up in the war on terror and a piece of long-form journalism from the front lines of the Libyan revolution. Finally, it's bundled with a collection of short fiction from South Sudan, giving voice to a people and nation who [...]

    6. Definitely worth the read. The collection of shorts has a fair amount of variety, from the heart wrenching tale of an innocent man behind bars to a lyrical tumble into one woman's mania. Makes for a fast read, too. I purchased this bundled with "There is a Nation" (which I am currently reading). I also enjoyed both cover art and general design; very clean and straightforward (if you're into that sort of thing. I'm a visual artist so I give points for style).

    7. read with a big interest the story of lybian rebels and their revolution while a revolution is going on in Ukraine and is becoming dangerous. I hope we won't turn into anarchy with wrong people taking the power.

    8. A slim and speedy volume, light in artwork and so-so in the main section (disliked the long t.c. Boyle story, liked all of the nonfiction). The South Sudan story section was very interesting, would have been nice to have some substantial nonfiction to accompany that as well.

    9. A few great pieces. A couple that are not. But the WORST COVER DESIGN for a book of all time. Not user friendly at all. Your hand disappears through the big gaping hole.

    10. A very good but not great issues. T.C. Boyle's story is quite striking, and the additional anthology of South Sudanese fiction is a worthy peel into an ignored corner of the world.

    11. This issue of McSweeney's has one book devoted to fiction from South Sudan, which is the whole reason I bought it and it did not disappoint.
