With a worldwide circulation of over 135,000, The New York Review of Books has established itself, in Esquire‘s words, as “the premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language.” What has made The New York Review successful, according to The New York Times, is its “stubborn refusal to treat books, or the theatre and movies, for that matter, as categories of entertainment to be indulged in when the working day is done.” The New York Times further described the Review as “one of the most influential and admired journals of its kind, attracting a high-powered roster of writers.” Look inside and see for yourself.
