Founded in Edinburgh in 1979, Literary Review is Britain's best-loved literary monthly, providing sixty-four pages of witty, informative and authoritative reviews each month. It covers everything from history, biography and politics to literature, art and travel, and its contributors include some of the best writers and thinkers of the day. 

Martin Amis said: "In Literary Review you find something that has almost vanished from the book pages: its contributors are actually interested in Literature."
