Description

Launched in 2011 as online magazine to revive the great American tradition of the long-form literary and cultural arts review, the Los Angeles Review of Books has established itself as a new institution for writers and readers unlike anything else. A nonprofit, multimedia literary and cultural arts magazine, LARB combines serious book review with the evolving technologies of the web. The LARB Quarterly Journal reflects the best that this institution has to bring to readers all over the world. Cultivating a stable of regular contributors, both eminent (Jane Smiley, Mike Davis, Jonathan Lethem) and emerging (Jenny Hendrix, Colin Dickey, Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah), LARB achieves a certain tone that readers expect and enjoy: looser and more eclectic than other journals, grounded in literature but open to all varieties of cultural experience, far from the New York publishing hothouse atmosphere but not myopically focused on Los Angeles either. The LARB Quarterly Journal builds on the best aspects of the online magazine and proves that long-form literary and cultural arts review is alive and well.
