Founded by George Plimpton and friends in 1953, The Paris Review is America’s best loved and most influential literary magazine. In the early days, the Review discovered such writers as Philip Roth, Jack Kerouac, and Adrienne Rich. Later discoveries include Jim Carroll, Mona Simpson, Jeffrey Eugenides, Jay McInerney, Edward P. Jones, and David Foster Wallace, just to name a few.

Although the Review is known as a laboratory for new fiction and poetry, it is perhaps even more famous for its interview series: Writers at Work.

The Writers at Work series offers authors a rare opportunity to discuss their life and art at length; they have responded with some of the most revealing self-portraits in literature. Among the interviewees are Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Dorothy Parker, James Baldwin, Vladimir Nabokov, Joan Didion, and Jonathan Franzen. As Dwight Garner recently wrote in The NY Times, the Writers at Work series is “one of the single most persistent acts of cultural conservation in the history of the world.”

We at the Review have long held the standard for the printed word in all its forms. Today, the magazine and the Web site introduce people not only to the best in contemporary prose and poetry, but to our rich literary archive. As we approach our sixtieth anniversary, we are pleased to offer more ways than ever to share what we do: now, with a Paris Review app. Available on tablets and smart phones, the app will make our content easily available both to long-term lovers of the magazine and to those who will now be able to access it for the first time.

The Paris Review offers a one-year, four-issue subscription for $29.99, automatically renewed until canceled. Subscribers will also get the current issue at the time of subscription.

SUBSCRIBER'S AUTOMATIC-RENEWAL FEATURE: Your subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will automatically be charged at the same price for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current twelve-month period unless you change your subscription preferences in iTunes. You can manage your subscriptions through your iTunes Account Settings after purchase.

Your feedback is much appreciated. Please contact us at if you encounter any problems or have any suggestions for us.

Customer Reviews

Surprisingly unfortunate.

I am not sure how it came about that a publication on this level released an app that just shows you pages as if they were images / doesn't even flow text like a normal e-reader or reading app. I bought an issue and trying to read it is like trying to read a regular PDF: impossible on a phone in portrait mode, almost-kindasorta legible if you switch to landscape mode but only if you manually re-fix the zoom level by pinching out EVERY TIME YOU TURN THE PAGE. I would strongly recommend against buying content on this app without trying a sample first to see if you can stand the limitations.

Not worthy of the Paris Review.

This app is a mess. Constantly "LOADING" and the Daily section is just a web view on their website.

Thus it's not much use offline, which makes it basically like the website only with much worse usability.

I love the Paris Review and I do hope they have a good native app some day. This is not it.

no voiceover

Not optimized for voiceover. So, blind readers, don’t bother subscribing.
