The European Review of Books is a magazine of culture and ideas, in English and in a writer’s own tongue. They publish book-length print issues three times a year, and digital pieces each week.
No review of books reviews only books, nor does it merely review. They publish many kinds of writing: fiction, travelogue, provocation, parody, poem, come what may. In general they champion the essayistic mode. A good essay is the antidote to the measly opinion, the enemy of the airy platitude. They want avenues to the arcane, the profane, the grand.
Their first print issue, sprawling by design. Essays spanning the archaeological and the astronautical. Reviews of old books in new translation, and reviews of new books in non-translation. Plus fiction, poetry, anecdote, remembrance, collage, photography, and questions-not-so-frequently-asked.
