Bound in a beautiful, colorful cover, McSweeney's Quarterly Concern #20 shocked and amazed me from the first story to the last. The most consistent effort from McSweeney's in the past couple of years features full page, original color artwork every fourth page, and is as visually pleasing as it is literary. Included in the hardbound edition is an excerpt from Chris Adrian's novel, The Children's Hospital, which I didn't read, since I'm reading that novel later this month.
My next book is Get a Life, by Dupuy/Berberian/
