Editorial Reviews

Review

As perhaps the most potent new literary journal to arise in the last few years, n+1 deserves every accolade that comes its way. With an emphasis on memoir and literary essay forms, it projects a level of seriousness that is too often muted in other publications. . . . Highly recommended. --Library Journal

Just when you're thinking you're intellectually alone in the world, something like n+1 falls into your hands. --Jonathan Franzen, quoted in New York Magazine

Pointed, closely argued and often brilliantly original critiques of contemporary life and letters. . . . A generational struggle against laziness and cynicism. --A.O. Scott, New York Times Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars I.V. for eyeballs February 25, 2009
Format:Paperback
N+1 is the best and most accountable of literary magazines available. It takes readers with intellectual needs, nostalgias and pretensions seriously and unlike so many other reviews this one is not just a platform for a coterie of insiders who ring around the maypole feigning a jolly welcome while holding hands as if vulcanized for the world-rending incursions of Red Rover. This seventh issue is particularly special because it includes fiction and poetry from dead authors, something contrary to editorial policy of this periodical that seeks to resuscitate the scene rather than authors. The dead on display are Roberto Bolano (poetry) and Thomas Bernhard (part of a play) and they shine. There is a tremendous article by A. S. Hamrah who watched all "global-war-on-terror movies released since 2002" in order to refine cinema into insight. Also of interest is an interview with a hedge fund manager that was sustained over many torturous months during which this insider could not turn away gaze from wreck. Toward the end, another source of great pleasure, one will find Elif Batuman's "Summer in Samarkand", an article ostensibly about Russian literature. The reviews in this issue persuaded me that I need not spend time with anything reviewed after the reviews themselves. Subscribe, enjoy.

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.
