McSweeney's è una casa editrice fondata da Dave Eggers, autore di Conoscerete la nostra velocità, L'opera struggente di un formidabile genio e, assieme a molti altri scrittori e disegnatori, del Futuro dizionario d'America.

Come vero e proprio think tank e centro di pensiero radical e liberal, ha lanciato le carriere di molti giovani autori, ma ha anche pubblicato i lavori di scrittori famosi come Michael Chabon, Stephen King, e Joyce Carol Oates.
