McSweeney’s is an independent publishing house based in San Francisco. Our converted laundromat is home to the Quarterly (mostly short fiction), the Believer (monthly interviews, reviews, columns, and essays), Wholphin (DVD quarterly of short films by Miranda July, Spike Jonze, Alexander Payne, and others), and books by authors including Nick Hornby, William Vollmann, and Michael Chabon.
You can now enjoy all this on trains, during lunch, and through all the other empty gaps in a day — moments of solitude, moments of togetherness, moments of intolerable boredom — via our newest tendril: the Small Chair, a weekly sampler from all branches of the McSweeney’s family. One week we might send a story from the upcoming Quarterly, the next week an interview from the Believer, the next a short film from a future Wholphin. Occasionally, it might be a song, an art portfolio, who knows. Early contributors will include Spike Jonze, Wells Tower, Chris Ware, and Jonathan Ames. This material will not be available online and is pretty sure to be good stuff.
