Founded in 1979 in response to a management lockout at The Times, and the resulting suspension of their literary supplement, the LRB has become Europe’s leading magazine of books and ideas. As they explain…
‘Published twice a month, it provides a space for some of the world’s best writers to explore a wide variety of subjects in exhilarating detail – from culture and politics to science and technology via history and philosophy. In the age of the long read, the LRB remains the preeminent exponent of the intellectual essay, admired around the world for its fearlessness, its range and its elegance.’
This issue features: T.J. Clark on Pissarro and Cézanne, Andrew O’Hagan on the New Romantics, Christopher Tayler on Martin Amis, Clair Wills on Ali Smith, Emily Wilson on the Oresteia and a cover by Naomi Frears.
