The LARB Quarterly Journal

Summer 2015

What is being done at the Los Angeles Review of Books is renegade. The fish swimming upstream. A perfect example of disruptive innovation in a floundering industry.

The forthcoming summer issue of the Quarterly Journal emphasizes an exciting selection of new poetry from emerging poets. It also includes new work from fiction-writer and critic Frederic Tuten, longtime science journalist Greg Crister, novelist Mary Kay Zuravleff, and award-winning memoirist Louise Steinman, among many others. The Journal’s pages also include works by artists at the vanguard of contemporary visual art.

The LARB Quarterly Journal is a testament to the fact that print is still thriving as readers continue to have a profound appetite for curated, edited, smart and fun opinion, written by the best writers and thinkers of our time.

These carefully selected articles, poems, interviews and essays — all written exclusively for this publication — appeal to readers with wide-ranging interests and a love for the literary. The new issue of the LARB Quarterly Journal includes:

  • Feature essays by Frederic Tuten, Deb Durham, Greg Critser, Liska Jacobs, Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Ashley Rindsberg, Alissa Wilkinson, Louise Steinman, Brian Hanrahan, Steven Belletto, Gavin Tomson, and Mary Kay Zuravleff.
  • Original poetry by Jean Valentine, Max Ritvo, Elizabeth Arnold, Ishion Hutchinson, Bianca Stone, and Hafizah Geter.
  • Short-takes by Greg Glazner, Rolf Potts, John Stintzi, and Barrie Jean Borich.
  • Including an Artist Portfolio and profile of Clarissa Tossin.
