by Claire Boyle, John Lee Clark, Lydia Conklin, Yohanca Delgado, Max Delsohn, Dave Eggers, Julie Hecht, Evan James, Mel Kassel, Siqi Liu, Fernanda Melchor, Leila Renee, Mikkel Rosengaard, Zach Williams and Connor Willumsen
Published by McSweeney's
4.5"x7.5", 320p, paperback
Inside this supermarket pulp-inspired paperback featuring cover art by Benjamin Marra, readers will find a novelette about a sex co-op by Lydia Conklin; a relato about Veracruz dockworkers by Fernanda Melchor; a story about an eccentric childhood neighbor by Julie Hecht; speculative fiction about mothers and daughters in the apocalypse by Siqi Liu; a shocking tale of baby bath time by Zach Williams; a DeafBlind remix of an ancient Indian fable by John Lee Clark; an encounter with your dimmer, more winsome doppelgänger by Yohanca Delgado; and much more. Not only that, we’ve gathered for you painfully new fiction about feral “glamping” trips (Max Delsohn) and mysterious deep-fakers (Mikkel Rosengaard), ghoulish bachelorette parties (Mel Kassel) and obstreperous crank-yankers (Evan James) -- all topped off by an extended post-breakup stay at your nearest fast-food joint (Leila Renee). Prepare to be entertained by letters from Ikechukwu Ufomadu, April Ayers Lawson, Anelise Chen, Bianca Giaever, and Ricardo Frasso Jaramillo; drift away to a trash-strewn island in a full-color psychedelic comic by Connor Willumsen.
Compiled by visiting editor James Yeh, McSweeney’s 69 is a vast topography of literary thrills and spills that you’ll return to again and again.
