There’s something extraordinary about Dave Eggers. Capturing characters and tales in simple yet captivating language, he has become the writer of our generation. Socially aware, humble and obsessed with injecting life into literature, Eggers has gained international respect not only for his award-winning texts, but for his work in granting other writers exposure. One such avenue Eggers is responsible for creating is McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, a ground-breaking publication featuring art and words from some of the world’s most original artists. Established in 1998, McSweeney’s was originally pitched as a journal for writers who had had their work rejected by other magazines. In an industry that prides itself on profit-making, it’s incredibly refreshing to see that issue after issue, McSweeney’s Quarterly heralds creativity over profit.
