The Best of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency edited by Chris Monks and John Warner

bestI have followed Dave Eggers, founder of McSweeney’s Publishing, since reading his great memoir “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius” years ago.  When I came across the short essay book The Best of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, I had to read it.  My favorite essay is “Passive-Aggressive Vegan Grocery Cashier: A Day in the Life” by Meredith Gray.  New mothers will enjoy “Hello Stranger on the Street, Could You Please Tell Me How to Take Care of My Baby?” by Wendy Molyneux.  Last but not least, Transformers fans will love “A Letter to Optimus Prime from his Geico Auto Insurance Agent” by Frank Weaver.  You won’t want to miss this book, and McSweeney’s is certainly going to gain some new fans with it.
