The Silent History

McSweeney’s editor Eli Horowitz recently told us about a new project he’s working on that launched earlier this month. A “strange novel/app thing” called The Silent History:

The Silent History is a novel, written and designed specially for iPad and iPhone, that uses serialization, exploration, and collaboration to tell the story of a generation of unusual children. The app is available as a free download from the App Store; the text itself can be purchased within the app by volume or as a whole.

Check out the teaser video above featuring the voices of Miranda July and Ira Glass.
