Digital Editions Coming Soon

Cover of Issue 1

It’s an exciting time at the office. We’re starting work on Issue 12, and we’re also about to make our first ten issues much more accessible to new readers.

Within the next two weeks, we’re going to launch a new store, which will feature digital editions of all our back issues. For the first time in years, you’ll be able to purchase issues that sold out in print; for the first time ever, you’ll be able to access our back issues instantly, and just about wherever you want.

In advance of the new store, we’ve created a limited-time offer to introduce web readers to the magazine: a new print subscription with a hard copy of either our first or second issue. For the next week only, you can sign up to join us as a new print reader and receive a classic issue from our archives. Issue 1 features Mark Greif’s “Against Exercise,” Keith Gessen’s “Eggers, Teen Idol,” fiction by Benjamin Kunkel, and polemics against the New Republic, McSweeney’s, and the Weekly Standard. Issue 2 includes Elif Batuman’s debut, “Babel in California,” and Marco Roth’s “Last Cigarettes,” among other standout early pieces.

And look out for our new store!


It’s the right thing to do.
