The London Review of Books is the largest cultural, political and literary magazine in Europe and has an unparalleled international reputation for long form literary journalism. Published every two weeks, each issue contains unique contributions by the world’s leading thinkers, scholars and writers on a range of subjects such as history, politics, philosophy, art, poetry, biography, film and more.
