SORRY TO BOTHER YOU

Through November 9, we’re auctioning off a number of props and costumes from Boots Riley’s 2018 hit film “Sorry to Bother You,” the screenplay of which was originally published in 2014 as part of McSweeney’s 48.

The Convergences Contest

To celebrate the release of Lawrence Weschler’s Everything That Rises: A Book of Convergences, we’ve launched an extravagant contest: A Convergence of Convergences. Submit your own convergence—an unlikely, striking pair of images, along with a paragraph or three exploring the deeper resonances. The best contributions will be posted on the site, along with responding commentary from Weschler. Please send your submissions to everything@mcsweeneys.net—if your images are attachments (rather than links), please keep them under 1 megabyte.
