The newly redesigned (and highly anticipated) issue #238 of The Paris Review has arrived. As new editor Emily Stokes shares in their opening letter of the Winter 2021 edition:
'This issue of The Paris Review may look unfamiliar, through some longtime subscribers will recognise it as a return. Our designer, Matt Willey, was inspired in part by the issues of the seventies. They were printed on soft pages that invite being dog-eared; their spines crack in the places where they are most often opened. They are small enough to hide in a big coat pocket, or to hold in one hand while reading on the subway or in bed.'
Since its founding in 1953, The Paris Review has been America’s preeminent literary quarterly, dedicated to discovering the best new voices in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.
