New York Review of Books Archive Online

Finally, online access to the back issues of The New York Review of Books!!! Just look at the list of reviewers and contributors in the first issue from Feb. 1, 1963: Lowell, Berryman, Dupee, Hardwick, Auden, McCarthy, Rahv, Mailer, Warren, Sontag (I’m not making this up), Kazin, Rich, Hollander, Glazer, Styron, Vidal and even more. And that’s just the first issue. Here’s a gem:
Making a living is nothing; the great difficulty is making a point, making a difference—with words. Elizabeth Hardwick in her piece “Grub Street: New York” from the first issue.

Happy Reading!
