    Description
    Edited by Dave Eggers.

    Enclosed are eight individual books, fully illustrated, which resurrect and reinvent the art of the fable-simple, surprising, and morally direct. More or less.

    Poor Little Egg-Boy Hatched in a Shul - NATHAN ENGLANDER

    The Book and the Girl - Brain Evenson

    The Guy Who Kept Meeting Herself - RYAN BOUNDINOT

    LaKeisha and the Dirty Girl - TAYARI JONES

    The Thousands - DANIEL ALARCON

    Two Free Man - SHEILA NETI

    The Box - SARAH MANGUSO

    Virgil Walker - ARTHUR BRADFORD

    In eight illustrated books, elegantly held together in a single beribboned case, McSweeney's 28 explores the state of the fable—those astute and irreducible allegories one doesn't see so much anymore in our strange new age, when everyone is wild for the latest parable or apologue but can't find time for anything else. Featuring fable-length work by Daniel Alarcón, Sheila Heti, and Nathan Englander, and different illustrators for each piece, McSweeney's 28 promises to offer many nights' worth of fine reading.
