Product Overview

"McSweeney''s Issue 22" is a three-part exercise in inspired restriction -- of author, of content, and of form. In section one, poets (yes -- poets!) including Mary Karr, Denis Johnson, C. D. Wright, and D. C. Berman initiate poet-chains, picking a poem of their own and one by another poet. The next poet will then do the same, and then again, and again, and so on. In section two, Fitzgerald (yes -- F. Scott Fitzgerald!) provides a list of unused story premises first cataloged in "The Crack-Up"; his mission is completed by writers like Diane Williams and Nick Flynn. In section three, finally, the president of France''s (yes -- France!) legendary Oulipians offers a rare glimpse into his group''s current experiments with linguistic constraint. Freedom''s just another word for nothing left to lose.
