Read full description of the books:
I had bad luck with this one, because the first few stories I read were the weakest in the book. But after some more hopping around, I have to say this is one of my favorite issues of the Quarterly. The art was always interesting and some of the stories were really fantastic. Although most of the stories fall into my mental classification of the "McSweeney's style," which is my description for stories where nothing happens, people act in inexplicable ways, and which are enjoyable while reading but then immediately forgotten and never remembered, there are a few really interesting pieces in here.
Of particular interest to my future, re-reading-this-volume self: "Statement of Purpose," a strange, modern, misfit love story; "The Big Dud," some sort of spoof on detective stories, with a main character who sort of reminds me of myself; "Loess," a political-revolutionary story reveling in specific ambiguity; "Mate," about a regular guy (whatever?) in prison; and "The King's Book," which I choose to imagine is Saddam Hussein's arrest journal. Of these, the second and third are, in particular, worth rereading.
