8 Down, 44 To Go "McSweeney's Issue 25" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

As much as I love McSweeney's Quarterly, and as much as I have adored the past several issues, #25 left me scratching my head. For every strong story by a Joyce Carol Oates or a Padgett Powell that had me in awe of the writing, there was another story that made me wonder what the editors were thinking...

Amy Jean Porter's illustrations that accompany each story are breathtaking, though, and the foil-stamped cover art by Leah Hayes almost makes the book worthwhile for its own brilliance.
