Description


The first anthology of America's foremost intellectual magazine.
" n+1" appeared in the fall of 2004, the brainchild of a group of writers working out of a small apartment. Intended to revive the leftist social criticism and innovative literary analysis that was the hallmark of the "Partisan Review "and other midcentury magazines, "n+1" was a rejoinder to the consumerism and complacency of the Bush years. It hasn't slowed down since. "n+1 "has given us the most clear-eyed reporting on the 2008 crash and the Occupy movement, the best criticism of publishing culture, and the first sociological report on the hipster. No media, new or old, has escaped its ire as "n+1"'s outspoken contributors have taken on reality TV, Twitter, credentialism, drone strikes, and Internet porn.
"Happiness," released on the occasion of "n+1"'s tenth anniversary, collects the best of the magazine as selected by its editors. These essays are fiercely contentious, disconcertingly astute, and screamingly funny. They explore our modern pursuits of happiness and take a searching moral inventory of the strange times we live in. Founding lights Chad Harbach, Keith Gessen, Benjamin Kunkel, Marco Roth, and Mark Greif are featured alongside Elif Batuman, Rebecca Curtis, Emily Witt, and other young talents launched by "n+1."
This" n+1 "anthology is the definitive work of the definitive twenty-first century intellectual magazine.
