19 October 1979
Founded in Edinburgh in 1979, Literary Review is a trusted independent source for reviews of new books in history, biography, politics, travel and fiction. The monthly publication is well known for its amusing contributions and excellent editorial written by leading authors, journalists and academics, forming a gold mine for research in past and present literature.
Martin Amis said: "In Literary Review you find something that has almost vanished from the book pages: its contributors are actually interested in Literature."
