Newyorker.com is announcing today the re-launch of its books coverage with a new landing page for all things literary—from book reviews and fiction from the magazine, to our popular podcasts, to our newly launched blog Page-Turner. Expanding on the magazine’s book coverage, the blog will be a place for immediate reflections on new books and publishing trends.
“Our writers are some of the most thoughtful minds at work in the world, and our aim is to draw on their literary enthusiasms and passions to create a space where they can write about the books they think are the most important ones out there right now—that move them to make sharp arguments about political and literary currents in the culture, and about the evolving careers of admired writers and artists,” said David Remnick, Editor of The New Yorker.
The re-launch of the Newyorker.com’s books coverage is supported by Amazon Publishing, publisher of “The Mongoliad” by Neal Stephenson, Greg Bear, Mark Teppo, Joseph Brassey, Erik Bear, Cooper Moo and E.D. deBirmingham, and the upcoming “The Dark Monk” by Oliver Pötzsch, author of the bestselling “The Hangman’s Daughter.”
“We are proud to support the re-launch of The New Yorker’s world renowned books coverage,” said Jeff Belle, Vice President, Amazon Publishing. “The discovery and conversation around books that The New Yorker incites is an inspiration to us as a publisher.”
