The Believer’s mission is to introduce readers to the best and most interesting work in the world of art, culture, and thought whether that means literature, painting, wrestling, philosophy, or cooking in an attractive vehicle that’s free from the bugbears of condescension, mustiness, and jargony obfuscation. Its content (including essays, interviews, comics, poetry, and reviews) offers fresh perspectives from editors Heidi Julavits, Vendela Vida, and Karolina Waclawiak. Each issue includes the popular columns Stuff I’ve Been Reading,” by Nick Hornby, and What the Swedes Read” (a look at Nobel Prize-winners), by Daniel Handler.
This issue features Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah on Jimi Hendrix's Electric Lady Studios, Livia Manera Sambuy on a fifteen-year friendship with Philip Roth, Lisa Wells on Finisia Medrano and her nomads of the Great Basin, reporting from India and the Ukraine; new poems by John Ashbery, Jynne Dilling Martin, and Rae Armantrout; and (among many other wonders) interviews with R. Crumb, Roz Chast, Stephin Merritt, Kumail Nanjiani, Zainab Salbi, and Dian Hanson.

The Believer is edited by Heidi Julavits, Vendela Vida, and Karolina Waclawiak.Review:
The Believer... puts out a welcome mat for pluralism and wide-eyed curiosity... decidedly youthful, not only in their characteristic generational concerns the habit of nonchalantly blending pop culture, literary esoterica and academic theory, for instance, or the unnerving ability to appear at once mocking and sincere but also in the sense of bravado and grievance that ripples through their pages.” New York Times
It’s got people talking in the lofty reaches of the book world, and with its high-low mix of literary and pop-culture commentary and McSweeney's pedigree it's a magnet for younger readers.” San Francisco Chronicle
Focusing on the art, not the business, of writing, Believer is smart, jaded and a bit self-indulgent, just like a good literary magazine should be.” Chicago Tribune
Impassioned.” Los Angeles Times
Without a doubt, this Believer is heaven-sent.” Washington Post
