  McSweeney's Issue 22 is a three-part exercise in inspired restriction of author, of content, and of form. In section one, poets (yes poets!) including Mary Karr, Denis Johnson, C. D. Wright, and D. C. Berman initiate poet-chains, picking a poem of their own and one by another poet/5. As for the content of Is it's as provocative as its design. The three books within a book are separate but all push the envelope. From the Notebook is inspired by the notebooks kept by F. Scott Fitzgerald. These were published posthumously in The Crack-Up.

Surprising first of all is the amount of nonfiction in the pieces s: 2. The book titled "McSweeney's 36" had an excellent story from the persistently brilliant writer Ismet Prcic (read his story in "McSweeney's 26" for further proof of his ability) about an Eastern European soldier from the countryside sitting in the audience of an avant-garde American play about their views on /5(13).
