The "project of Keith Gessen, Benjamin Kunkel, Mark Greif, Chad Harbach, Allison Lorentzen and Marco Roth. The magazine is described by Gessen as 'like Partisan Review, except not dead.' It was launched out of a feeling of dissatisfaction with the current intellectual scene in the United States" and has, of course, both its supporters and detractors - but with the editors having the honesty to question themselves when and as necessary.
The outlook of the editors "is most frequently summed up by the last lines of their first issue where [they] proclaimed, 'it is time to say what you mean.' Yet in the third issue, critic James Wood responded to criticism of his negative criticism and, singling out this quote from issue 1, stated, 'The Editors had unwittingly proved the gravamen of their own critique: that it is easier to criticize than to propose'. " (n.b., above info and quotes from Wiki.)
