The New York Times has called The New York Review of Books “the country’s most successful intellectual journal.” According to the Times, “The secret of its success is this: its editors’ ability to get remarkable writers and thinkers, many of them specialists in their fields, to write lucidly for lay readers on an enormous range of complex, scholarly and newly emerging subjects, issues and ideas.” New York Review Books brings together some of the finest writing in science, philosophy, history, politics, the arts, and literature from the Review’s contributors along with new fiction and nonfiction from literary and intellectual mavericks such as Brian Dillon, Amit Chaudhuri, Jonathan Buckley, and Isabella Tree. Included are volumes by such distinguished writers as Freeman Dyson, Martin Filler, Fritz Stern, Daniel Mendelsohn, Joan Didion, Darryl Pinckney, and Tim Parks, as well as important nonfiction works by such writers as Renata Adler, Sasha Abramsky, and Benedetta Craveri.

The first issue of Hanging Loose magazine was published in 1966. The name was inspired by the format -- mimeographed loose pages in a cover envelope -- and that, in turn, was inspired by a very low budget. But the format was also meant to get across a point of view: that poetry is for now, not for the Ages. If you liked a poem, you could pin it to the wall. If you didn’t like a poem, you could use it as a napkin. The first issue of HL contained work by Denise Levertov, John Gill, Jack Anderson, Victor Contoski and other poets who would remain close to the magazine. The editors were in agreement that they were not interested in begging poems from famous writers but that they wanted to stress work by new writers and by older writers whose work deserved a larger audience. In 1968, the magazine introduced a feature which has become celebrated over the years, a regular section devoted to writing by talented high school writers. This section introduced work by such young writers as Joanna Fuhrman, Donovan Hohn, Meghan O'Rourke and Rebecca Wolff,and has produced four highly praised anthologies of student work: Smart Like Me, Bullseye, Shooting the Rat and When We Were Countries. Address: 231 Wyckoff St, Brooklyn, NY 11217
