Alan Jacobs

A Note to Our Readers

Over the years I have discovered fans of Books & Culture in unlikely places—for instance, among the senior editors at periodicals you may have heard of: The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine. But really, there's nothing unlikely about it: people who run some of the best magazines in America ought to recognize their peers, and do. I imagine that these people love reading B&C for many of the same reasons I do: because John Wilson recruits writers who know their stuff backwards and forwards, who aren't ashamed of their enthusiasms, and who strive to write with a clarity that makes hard thoughts accessible to me. Every issue of B&C excites me because it is filled with just this kind of writing—and manages to enrich my faith to boot. If you do not subscribe, please do, and buy subscriptions for others: perhaps college students you know, who especially need the kind of nourishment B&C provides. Please help to sustain this distinctive and indeed irreplaceable magazine.
