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 HandlerThe Summer Issue features new work by Nell Zink, Alvaro Enrigue, and Gary Greenberg; interviews with Robert Coover, Amber Tamblyn, and the New York Public Library's Paul Holdengraber; and new poetry by Rae Armantrout. Also in these pages, and among many other delights, you'll find a special section on the theme of wildlife, essays on the man after whom Jim Jones patterned himself and what it's like to be named after a sibling who died before you were born, examinations of the work of the artists Ray Johnson and Jimmy Robert, and the editors' short lists for the eleventh annual Believer Book Award and the fifth annual Believer Poetry Award.Table of Contents:Pockets of Resistance Catherine FoulkrodHow to Send Things to Germany Nell ZinkThe Divine Inspiration of Jim Jones Adam Morris"Abstract Expressionism": a new poem Andrew NurkinThe Confidence Man Gary Greenberg"Shooting Possums from the Back Porch of Roger's Bar": a new poem Michael McGriffWhat's in a Necronym?
