A Glimpse Behind the McSweeney's Curtain in 'The Art of McSweeney's

Though we’ll never fully understand the wonderful, weird goings-on in the minds of Dave Eggers and McSweeney’s staffers, the new book, Art of McSweeney’s (Chronicle Books) sheds some light on the first 11 (or 12, depending on whom you ask) years of this independent publishing house. The fully illustrated tome features commentary by McSweeney’s contributors, including Sarah Vowell and Michael Chabon, and charts the first 31 issues of the “quarterly concern” as well as the other books, DVDs and journals published under the McSweeney’s arm.
