The Believer monthly books and culture magazine is three-time finalist for National Magazine Awards in General Excellence and Design. An amiable yet rigorous forum for books and book criticism,The Believer provides an alternative to the plot summary that has increasingly become synonymous with "book review," extending the ever-shortening shelf life of new books, reviving interest in books long overlooked, and stressing the interconnectivity of books to pop culture, politics, art, and music. To that end, each issue includes essays on these topics, as well as lengthy interviews with philosophers, politicians, and poets. Nick Hornby has a widely celebrated monthly books column, and Amy Sedaris (and well-known guest-columnists) offers an advice column comprised of hilariously bad advice.

The Undead Travel ~ The history of vampire novels. Tourism in Romania. How Lonely Planet was started. - Interesting.

A House Is a Machine to Live In ~ The history of mega-ships. A biography of Khut Kloster. Utopia. - Interesting.

In Pursuit of the Wild Cohiba ~ Cigars. A travelogue of Cuba. - Interesting.

>> So far wholly enjoyable reading.

Schema: Habitats of Regional Burger Chains ~ The origins of semi-famous old school burgers. - meh.

One-Page Book Reviews:
Juan Filloy’s Op Oloop - may be interesting.
Liz Waldner’s Trust - not a poetry fan.
David Lau’s Virgil and the Mountain Cat - not a poetry fan.
Matthew Simmons’s A Jello Horse - did not catch my interest.
Laura van den Berg’s What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us - short stories. maybe.

Guy Nordenson interviewed ~ The future of architecture. The environment in NYC. - interesting.

Musin’s and Thinkin’s ~ mildly amusing. for the first time.

Real Life Rock Top Ten ~ a couple are readable. for the first time.

My Alaska ~ jobless. in Alaska. in the 1970s. surviving. - decent.

Jonathan Ames interviewed ~ a writer who writes of his life to understand it. - so-so.

>> Shaping up to be the best issue of the three on the subscription so far, despite meh book reviews.

Creative Accounting: Exhibition at Mass MoCA ~ Expensive as expected. It would be interesting to see the exhibition to see if it was worth the expense and what I thought of the art.

There Never Really Was a “We” or “Ours” ~ Slighting depressing.

Agnès Varda interviewed ~ Said a lot about the points of her films and how herself showed in the file. - Liked the latter half more than the beginning.

Sedaratives ~ Curses and nastiness that's supposed to be funny but isn't.

>> The last four commented on well after I finished reading the magazine with just a quick skim to refresh my memory so may not be quite what I would have said directly after reading the articles. ( )
