Reviews

"The Believer . . . puts out a welcome mat for pluralism and wide-eyed curiosity... decidedly youthful, not only in their characteristic generational concerns the habit of nonchalantly blending pop culture, literary esoterica and academic theory, for instance, or the unnerving ability to appear at once mocking and sincere but also in the sense of bravado and grievance that ripples through their pages." The New York Times"It's got people talking in the lofty reaches of the book world, and with its high-low mix of literary and pop-culture commentary and McSweeney's pedigree it's a magnet for younger readers." the San Francisco Chronicle"Focusing on the art, not the business, of writing, Believer is smart, jaded and a bit self-indulgent, just like a good literary magazine should be." the Chicago Tribune"Impassioned." the Los Angeles Times"Without a doubt, this Believer is heaven-sent." The Washington Post
