The European Review of Books #3

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.


Issue Three arrives in fuchsia. In its pages: medieval wind power, Forensic Architecture, Climate commentary as tragedy & farce, fashionable fascism, Ukrainian jokes, romance in Kuala Lumpur, words and worlds found in translation.

Who guards the dream of Europe? (It isn’t who you think.)
