Dave Eggers publishes short story on shower curtain

Dave Eggers, author of the most excellent Zeitoun and founder of McSweeney’s, is publishing a short story on a shower curtain. No, it’s not a reworking of Psycho by Robert Bloch. The ‘publisher’ is The Thing, a quarterly that issues objects that are art-related or literary. The story curtain costs $65 – it better be good. Story and image via Jacket Copy.

This news opens up many literary possibilities especially for all the people who say the physical book is dead. Short stories could be published on towels, bed sheets, duvet covers, rugs, and table clothes.
