For the first time ever, McSweeney's Quarterly is illustrating each short story with full-spread, elaborately-staged photographs. Featuring eight original stories, and accompanying photos by the award-winning photographer Holly Andres, Issue 60 contains tales of healing powers discovered in a neighborhood market and retiring baseball stars, of ill-fated father-daughter float-plane trips and a romance with the ghost of an old Hollywood heartthrob. A not-to-be-missed, oversized issue, this is one you'll want to keep preserved in a temperature-controlled room for generations to come.
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 Varanasiand Otherwise Known as the Human Condition
