The Believer, a thirteen-time National Magazine Award finalist, is a quarterly literature, arts, and culture magazine published by McSweeney’s.

In Issue 145:

  • Meara Sharma meditates on the life of a largely-forgotten Caribbean writer; Eula Biss writes about the challenges of love after apartheid; Ann Beattie describes the aesthetic pleasures of arranging short stories; and Zefyr Lisowski looks back at the prolific career of trans dollmaker Greer Lankton.
  • Interviews with authors Hernan Diaz and Mona Simpson, podcaster Monica Padman, and sportswriter Marcus Thompson II, as well as a new comic from George Gene Gustines on being a sixteen-year-old letter hack.
  • Plus, Kent Monkman finds his “wiggle,” Susan Steinberg reflects on American Psycho as assigned reading, and Emma Copley Eisenberg writes about all that Eastwick, Philadelphia used to be.
  • All this plus newsprung guest columns from Daniel Halpern and Madeleine Thien, Jenny Slate-penned trivia, as well as poems, book reviews, a historical survey of art-world pejoratives, and more.
