About CRB

Cleveland Review of Books was born from the longing to have a magazine like The Point, N+1, or LARB, but based in Cleveland.

We are an online magazine publishing film and book reviews, poetry, fiction, and essays, with a particular emphasis on culture, politics, and theory. We also strive to highlight writers, issues, and works from the greater Cleveland area, as well as the rest of the Rust Belt and what has been colloquially termed “flyover country.”
