about this item
The Los Angeles Review of Books launched online in April 2011 to revive the great American tradition of the long-form literary and cultural arts review.LARB has quickly established itself as an institution unlike anything else on the web or in print, and has become a serious contributor to national conversations about literature, politics, and the arts. TheLARB Quarterly Journal is the signature print edition of LARB, specifically curated for the bookstore / independent bookseller marketplace, featuring all exclusive, previously unpublished content including reviews, essays, original poetry and fiction, artist profiles and interviews, and original art.With a stable of regular and ongoing contributors, both eminent and emerging, LARB covers all topics and genres in the literary and cultural arts. The Quarterly Journal, like LARB’s online magazine, specializes in a looser and more eclectic approach than other journals: grounded in literature but open to all varieties of cultural experience; headquartered in Los Angeles, but home to writers and artists from all over the world.LARB’s long-form reviews are making waves nationally and internationally, while tapping into a vibrant West Coast arts scene that has truly come of age. TheQuarterly Journal curates provocative criticism alongside new literary works, focusing on the ideas and topics that matter most now, from poetry to politics, from architecture to film, from science to comics. Independent and open to dialogue with its readers, LARB is shaping the current literary cultural landscape.Readers of the Quarterly Journal join a community of writers, critics, journalists, artists, filmmakers, and scholars dedicated to promoting the best that is thought and written, with an enduring commitment to the intellectual rigor, the incisiveness, and the power of the written word.
