McSweeneys Issue 63
McSweeney’s Quarterly returns with our first issue of 2021, a handsome and sturdy hardcover with a beautiful foil-stamped cover by Jon McNaught. McSweeney’s 63 features four posthumous, never-before-published short stories by acclaimed author and dear friend Stephen Dixon, with an introduction and retrospective on the late writer’s work by author—and onetime Dixon student—Porochista Khakpour. To boot we’ve got brand-new fiction from Etgar Keret and Esmé Weijun Wang, Illustrated diaries by Abang and full-color comics by Michael Kennedy, letters from Kashana Cauley and Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, an essay on a grief and long-distance biking by Adam Iscoe, and so much more. Start your literary year off right with this sumptuous issue.

And then?
We’ll follow these up with an innovative issue exploring the relationship between print and audio made in partnership with Radiotopia; plus more collections of the kind of cutting-edge literary content readers of McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern have come to expect for over two decades.

Praise for McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern

“There are few examples in publishing that equal the care and inventiveness McSweeney’s offers their readers—the industry at large should take note. I return to past issues more than most of the tomes on my shelves any time I need to re-spark my belief in publishing, in stories, in people.”
—Bookends and Beginnings, Evanston, IL

“Ever shape-shifting and ambitious, McSweeney’s has redefined what a literary institution can be. Their commitment to publishing strong, strange voices and stories from the periphery has always been an inspiration and I’m always excited to see what they’ll do next.”
Catherine Lacey, McSweeney’s contributor and author of The Answers

“McSweeney’s is so much more than a magazine; it’s a vital part of our culture. ”
Geoff Dyer, McSweeney’s contributor and author of Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi, and Otherwise Known as the Human Condition

“Some magazines are comfort reads. We turn to them because we can almost predict, issue to issue, what and even whom will appear in them. But others, like McSweeney’s, are challenge reads. They’re feverishly inventive, discomfortingly surprising, and therefore among the best reminders that we are actually alive. I love shouting at McSweeney’s, laughing with it, and rolling my eyes at myself while the magazine reads me like a deceptively perceptive carnival psychic.”
John D’Agata, author of Halls of Fame and About a Mountain

“I’m incredibly grateful for the existence of McSweeney’s. Its embrace of world literature is completely unique, lucid, knowing and indispensable.”
Francisco Goldman, McSweeney’s contributor and acclaimed author of The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle and The Art of Political Murder: Who Killed the Bishop?
