Mostly (not) on McSweeney's!

A blog for my academic ideas, more or less.

New approaches

To spark new and better writing, thinking of different ways to get into McSweeney’s.

Just finished reading McSweeney’s 28, did it fully of one evening. It’s eight short fables, so not surprising I managed it, but significant nonetheless. Can I use any of the fables as allegories for something about McSweeney’s?

The fables:

  • The Book and the Girl
  • LaKeisha and the Dirty Girl
  • The Guy Who Kept Meeting Himself
  • Poor Little Egg-Boy Hatched in a Shul
  • The Thousands
  • Two Free Men
  • The Box
  • Virgil Walker

Will return to this idea, there is definitely something possible, anything is possible with language, it’s just seeing if I’m capable of it and if it takes me somewhere interesting.
