(McSweeney's Quarterly Concern)
Timothy McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, a.k.a "Gegenshein"
(Brooklyn), (McSweeney's), 1998. The first issue of Dave Eggers' literary journal, which reportedly included only materials that had already been rejected by other publications. This copy is signed by Eggers ("Thank you/ D.E."), David Foster Wallace (on the dedication page), Rick Moody, Neal Pollack, Sarah Vowell, Arthur Bradford, and Todd Pruzan. McSweeney's went on to be one of the most influential publishing companies of the first decade of the 21st century: in addition to publishing the journal McSweeney's, with its innovative formats and content, it became a book publisher, introducing new writers and publishing new work by a number of already well-regarded writers. Light use; near fine in wrappers. [#032944] $1,500
