To celebrate our 50th issue, we've put together one of our very best collections, with stories, essays, treatises, manifestos, letters, comics, and illustrated travel diaries from 50 different contributors. There's stunning new work from writers who we've long published ― Jonathan Lethem, Lydia Davis, Sherman Alexie, Etgar Keret, Sheila Heti, Diane Williams, Sarah Vowell, John Hodgman, Steven Millhauser (among many others) ― and fantastic new writing from authors who we've long admired, including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Thomas McGuane, Kevin Young, and Carrie Brownstein. The physical object that will contain all this great work will be a sturdy and beautiful hardcover book . . . something to behold and something to keep.
