Editorial Reviews

Review

The mag's design is modeled on the Partisan Review, but its attempt to historicize snark is... refreshing. -- Ben Williams, Slate.com, July 27, 2004

To read the contents of the journal...is to realize that the science of the literary brawl has been revivified. -- Joshua Glenn, Boston Globe, July 25, 2004

n+1 is distinguished from academic journals by its readability... [I]t canvasses big ideas while informing a wider public. -- Gary Shapiro, New York Sun, July 26, 2004

More About the Author

n+1 is a Brooklyn-based magazine of literature, culture, and politics published three times yearly. It was founded in 2004 by Keith Gessen (All the Sad Literary Young Men), Mark Greif, Chad Harbach (The Art of Fielding), Benjamin Kunkel (Indecision), and Marco Roth and immediately attracted attention in New York and beyond. A. O. Scott described it in the New York Times Magazine as part of "a generational struggle against laziness and cynicism"; German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote, "they intend nothing less than to reimagine and reestablish the world."

Since its founding, n+1 has published Elif Batuman's remarkable first essays (later collected in The Possessed), Mark Greif's classic essays "Against Exercise," "On Radiohead," and "Afternoon of the Sex Children," excerpts from Helen DeWitt's latest novels (most recently Lightning Rods), and other memorable pieces. Each issue is about the length of a novel (200 pages), and features criticism, memoirs, fiction, reviews, and political essays. We also publish small books (most notably What Was the Hipster?) and at Amazon have made Kindle editions of all our publications and Kindle Singles of individual pieces available.

Our fall issue, "Conversion Experience," features a report from the Gathering of the Juggalos, an essay by Mark Greif on Stanley Cavell as a philosopher and teacher, an excerpt from Helen DeWitt's new novel, a history of the music website Pitchfork, and an essay on the politics and angst of gay marriage. We encourage you to take a look at let us know what you think. You can read more about us, browse web-only content, and find contact information at www.nplusonemag.com.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Paul Sas on September 3, 2006
Format: Paperback
I became aware of this literary journal after reading Kunkel's Indecision, and I subscribed beginning with issue 3. Not too long afterwards, they reprinted volumes 1 & 2. After reading through this first issue, it's very clear why my dalliance with McSweeney's has ended. This journal raises sharply focused questions, and in this first volume, critiques the McSweeney's posse for their regressive vision, their celebration of childhood as the supreme value, and the tendency for their graphic treatment to quote typographic twirls of the 19th century. The short fiction is interesting, especially the excerpt by Sam Lipsyte. Interesting reviews of the art scene (from 2004).

I had high expectations for n+1 and they were more than met.
