The Glasgow Review of Books is a review journal publishing short and long reviews, review essays and interviews, as well as translations, fiction, poetry, and visual art. We are interested in all forms of cultural practice and seek to incorporate more marginal, peripheral or neglected forms into our debates and discussions. We aim to foster discussion of work from small and specialised publishers and practitioners, and to maintain a focus on issues in and about translation. The review has a determinedly international approach, but is also a proud resident of Glasgow.

Vancouver’s Talon Books say: “The Glasgow Review of Books never fails to provide thoughtful, artful reviews that contextualize and intertextualize a book.”

The Glasgow Review of Books is published in Glasgow by Rebecca DeWald, Mark West, Eilidh McCabe, and Samuel Tongue. ISSN 2053-0560.
