Praise for n+1:

“Hand to heart, I swear the best literary writing in English blooms inside each issue. If they had a sandwich board, I’d wear it; if they had a flag, I’d wave it.”

—Mary Karr, Introduction to Happiness: Ten Years of n+1

n+1 is a lively, stimulating magazine of a rare intellectual scope.”

—Joyce Carol Oates

“One of the most impressive publications to emerge in the Bush–Obama era.”

—Perry Anderson

“Just when you’re thinking you’re intellectually alone in the world, something like n+1 falls into your hands.”

—Jonathan Franzen

n+1 is the rightful heir to the Partisan Review and The New York Review of Books. It is rigorous, curious, and provocative.”

—Malcolm Gladwell

“An island of hope in a sea of inanity.”

—Nancy Fraser
