The London Review of Books is widely considered as one of the best literary magazine on topics of literature, the arts, culture, history, politics and philosophy published in the world today.
Breadth is key for this title as it prides itself on covering the most seminal current debates with a scholarly approach and never shies away from challenging a conventional viewpoint. Each issue has up to 15 long form essays on diverse topics and encourages its contributors to develop ideas; you can enjoy writing from leading thinkers including Alan Bennett, Hilary Mantel, Mary Beard and John Lanchester.
The LRB is fiercely independent and unashamedly outspoken. Make sure you are part of the conversation by subscribing to the London Review of Books.
From the publisher
The London Review of Books is the most widely-circulated literary magazine in Europe. An LRB subscription is perfect for anyone with a passion for literature, politics, history, philosophy, poetry, biography, opinion pieces, film and the arts. Alan Bennett calls the London Review of Books magazine "the liveliest, most serious and most radical literary magazine we have".
Readers of the London Review of Books have come to expect inspired matches of writer and subject. Often provocative and always original, LRB writers do more than just review books- they use recently published books as a catalyst to interrogate and analyse world culture; the end point is a collection of independent, originally-crafted essays. A London Review of Books magazine subscription also makes a great gift for anyone with a love of literature. Each subscription will include full print + digital access.
As well as the print title direct to your door, each LRB subscription also comes with FREE access to the LRB app, so you will never be without the LRB. You will also get full access to the entire, searchable LRB archive, containing every piece we ever published (over 14,000 articles, poems and reviews).
This is published 24 times per year, please allow up to 4-6 weeks for your first delivery. Your subscription will begin with the next available issue.
