MCSWEENEY'S QUARTERLY 56 LAUNCH EVENT featuring EMERSON WHITNEY and DANTIEL W. MONIZ
 

McSweeney's 56 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern)

Issue 56 delivers new work from Michelle Tea, Jose Antonio Vargas, T. C. Boyle, Dantiel W. Moniz, Genevieve Hudson, Jincy Willett, to name a few, and a section of staggering fiction from emerging Nigerian writers soon to be household names, with an introduction by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. There are botched home invasions and perception-heightening witchcraft, disillusioned mailmen and playlists for the comatose, posthumous visits from lovers and nail-biting prison breaks.

And, if that weren’t enough, this opulent hardcover also includes a captivating ten-page illustrated story by Rui Tenreiro that begins right on the cover, and poems by Soviet-era absurdist Daniil Kharms, translated by Ilya Kaminsky and Katie Ferris. Time to cancel your plans—something more important has come up.

Emerson Whitney is the author of the memoir Heaven, forthcoming from McSweeney's in 2020, as well as the poetry book Ghost Box (Timeless, Infinite Light, 2014). Emerson teaches in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at Goddard College and is the Dana and David Dornsife Teaching Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Southern California.

Dantiel W. Moniz is a homegrown Floridian whose work has appeared in Tin House, Ploughshares, and Joyland, among other publications. Her debut story collection, Milk Blood Heat, is forthcoming from Grove Atlantic.
