McSWEENEY’S ISSUE 56
This is a preorder. Orders placed now will ship July, 2019.
Get this issue, plus our next three—Issue 57 (our mammoth twenty-first anniversary issue), Issue 58, and Issue 59—by subscribing today.
Issue 56 delivers new work from Michelle Tea, Jose Antonio Vargas, T. C. Boyle, Dantiel W. Moniz, Genevieve Hudson, Jincy Willett, to name a few, and a section of staggering fiction from emerging Nigerian writers soon to be household names, with an introduction by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. There are botched home invasions and perception-heightening witchcraft, disillusioned mailmen and playlists for the comatose, posthumous visits from lovers and nail-biting prison breaks.
And, if that weren’t enough, this opulent hardcover also includes a captivating ten-page illustrated story by Rui Tenreiro that begins right on the cover, and poems by Soviet-era absurdist Daniil Kharms, translated by Ilya Kaminsky and Katie Ferris. Time to cancel your plans—something more important has come up.

Jose Antonio Vargas
Dantiel W. Moniz
