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.
