The Baffler publishes cultural analysis, short stories, poems, art and left-wing political criticism six times a year. This latest edition is themed 'Hell or Las Vegas' and explores the place, symbols and the idea of Las Vegas, baby.
Indulge in all things food and food systems in this issue: a mysterious cult-favourite cookie in the American Midwest, conspiratorial nutrition from ‘tradwives,’ and the dual identity of Margate, both foodie beach destination and working class maritime town. As always, The Baffler bends and flexes with its theme, including broad interpretations of food, its economies, and its social impact. Dig in!
