Venerable at 35 and justly venerated for its unequalled mix of fiction, poetry, interview and essay, the Paris Review remains the single most important little magazine this country has produced. A glimpse through the table of contents of this new compendium will demonstrate why; the editors have launched a thousand careers and consistently published the best work of some of the best writers of our time. —T. Coraghessan Boyle

A selection of representative fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from the Anthology from 1953 to present.
