European Review of Books

European Review of Books #5

The ERB is a magazine of culture and ideas from The Netherlands, publishing three times a year. Under each bright coloured cover, you'll find book reviews yes but also fiction, travelogue, poetry, parody and who knows what else. All with the ERB’s remarkable print design: turn the pages to read, but cut the pages for a second layer of depth and digression.

Issue 5

"The 2024 spring-summer issue has questions: How best to lose Eurovision? What is Russia-themed erotica about? And it has destinations, often anguished ones: refugees and guards on the Polish border, Russians in Istanbul, Europe’s noisiest island, early Zionist disillusionment in Palestine, a return to Phnom Penh. Javier Milei literarily considered, Vincent van Gogh’s forgotten friend, Walter Benjamin’s last resort, Hélène Cixous on fiery foundations, philosophy at sea."
