About this product
- DescriptionThis title presents McSweeney's Miscellany. Interspersed with charts, graphs, and various crossword puzzles, the book features a span of today's best authors, who spin new tales ranging from the spooky to the strange. George Saunders tells the story of a father who takes caution to dangerous extremes in Lars Farf, Excessively Fearful Father and Husband . In ACES by Phone , a small boy finds a cellphone that lets him listen in on the thoughts of dogs, and in Small Country , Nick Hornby introduces a country too small for a postal system but, unfortunately for one bookish boy, just big eugh for a football team. Each story features full-color illustrations by artists including Barry Blitt, Lane Smith, David Heatley, and Marcel Dzama. The collection includes previously unpublished kids' stories from Jonathan Safran Foer ( Everything is Illuminated ), Nick Hornby ( High Fidelity ), Neil Gaiman ( Sandman ), George Saunders ( CivilWarLand in Bad Decline ), Kelly Link ( Stranger Than Fiction ), and Jon Scieskza ( Stinky Cheese Man ). There is also an introduction by Lemony Snicket. The dustjacket folds into a unique aerogram, which factors into a special contest involving a story written partly by Lemony Snicket, partly by thousands of children.
