First time reading McSweeney's

McSweeney's #46 - Dave Eggers

We grabbed a copy of McSweeney's from Powell's on a recent visit to Portland.  As dedicated eBook readers, I can't even remember the last time we bought a paper book, but apparently paper is the only way to read McSweeney's.

 

Crime fiction, Latin American or otherwise, is really not my cup of tea.  Lucky me, that was the theme for the issue.  That said, the overall quality of the writing and translation was pretty high.  And there were two stories in the collection I genuinely enjoyed and still think about from time to time.  I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed the letters to the editor in McSweeney's, I've never found readers' letters so entertaining!
