Edited by Dave Eggers
Issue 11 features contributions by many of your favorite McSweeney's writers, as well as a chorus of new voices. Contributors include: Tom Bissell, Sean Warren, Samantha Hunt, Robert Olmstead, T.C. Boyle, David Means, Doug Dorst, Joyce Carol Oates, A.G. Pasquella, Brent Hoff, Stephen Elliott, Daphne Beal, Denis Johnson, and many others.
This issue comes complete with a letters section and an interview with prominent scientists, in this case with those investigating the recently found colossal squid, the largest known to man.
Issue 11 also comes with a free DVD featuring readings by most of the contributors, a "Literary Cribs" episode starring Jonathan Ames, Eggers interviewing Denis Johnson, Daphne Beal singing in Nepali, and an intern talking about how writers like their coffee. An instant classic of the DVDs-attached-to-literary-quarterlies genre.
