McSweeney’s National Magazine Award–winning Quarterly Concern celebrates our first quarter century of being an occasionally actually quarterly publication as so many mid-twentysomethings do (drenching ourselves in a sea of nostalgia for our misbegotten youth and looking forward into the promise of the future) with one of our most dazzling issues to date! Coming to you housed inside a deluxe tin lunchbox illustrated by the legendary Art Spiegelman, McSweeney’s 74 features a portfolio of pareidolia art by Spiegelman himself, wherein he teases out images from random watercolor inkblots; original pieces by Lydia Davis, Catherine Lacey, and David Horvitz printed onto pencils and whose meaning is designed to change throughout the pencil’s lifespan; and three packs of collectible author cards, packaged in real tear-away baseball-card packaging and featuring some of the finest writers of our time, including Sheila Heti, Hanif Abdurraqib, George Saunders, Sarah Vowell, Michael Chabon, Eileen Myles, and many more.

Find all this plus the official McSweeney’s Anthology of Contemporary Literature: a book composed of some of the greatest works of McSweeney’s past decade, with a new introduction by longtime editor Claire Boyle. Here you’ll find award-winning, shortlisted, anthologized, and otherwise feted and beloved stories from Lesley Nneka Arimah, T.C. Boyle, Mimi Lok, Kevin Moffett, Adrienne Celt, Bryan Washington, Samanta Schweblin, C Pam Zhang, Eskor David Johnson, Julia Dixon Evans, and more! Dive in with us, readers, as we bathe in the warmth of the past, and get ready for our next quarter century of always thrilling and unexpected literary work.
