3 Eggers, Dave (editor)McSweeney's Issue 40 (McSweeney's Quarterly Concern)
San Francisco, CA McSweeney's Publishing 2012 1936365359 / 9781936365357 First Edition Hardcover/softcover As New No Jacket, as Issued 
Two volumes: one hardcover, one softcover. 183 & 202 pages, respectively. The hardcover volume is titled "In My Home There Is No More Sorrow: Ten Days in Rwanda," by Rick Bass, the award-winning environmental activist and writer. He and his wife and daughter went to Rwanda upon the invitation of a colleague, partly to help teach a writer's workshop at the National University of Rwanda, partly to tour the country to see the mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park and partly to experience the country and its history. McSweeney's calls this piece an "extraordinary account . . . the most ambitious nonfiction piece McSweeney's has ever run, and without a doubt one of the best essays of the year." Includes eight pages of color photographs. ~ The softcover volume contains stories by Saïd Sayrafiezadeh, David Vann, Kevin Moffett, Etgar Keret, Jason Jägel (which appears as a smaller softcover bound into the larger volume), Neil Gaiman, Nathan C. Martin, and Adam Levine. In addition, a special feature of this volume is a collection of writings titled "I Am Going Down on January 25: Writings From the Egyptian Revolution," and collected by Noor Elashi and Daniel Gumbiner (introduction by Noori Elashi). Thirteen Egyptian writers are represented. Black & white illustrations. Another fine issue of writing and art from this creative literary journal.
