Editor's Note

In this special issue, some of our favorite writers from the past ten years contribute new work, including Ron Carlson, Rick Moody, and Stuart Dybek, who were in our very first issue. Our Premiere Issue also featured a story by David Foster Wallace, whom we miss. In the spirit of coming full circle, we present a story written at the budding stage of his brilliant career, previously seen only in his college literary magazine and published here with the blessing of Wallace’s widow. Over the past decade Tin House has not only grown as a magazine, but now includes Tin House Books, which publishes ten books per year, and six years ago we built the Tin House Writers Workshop, held each summer in glorious Portland, Oregon. Along the way so many writers and artists have become like family to us. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have made these past ten years so meaningful, exciting, and gratifying. No amount of awards or accolades can compare. Of course, none of this would be possible without the initial courage and continuing enthusiasm and support of our unflagging publisher, Win McCormack. Lastly, we would like to thank our loyal readers, many of whom took the leap of faith early on and have seen us through renovations, floods, and small fires. Thank you for your enduring support.
