Literary Review was founded in Edinburgh in 1979 by Dr Anne Smith, head of the English Department at Edinburgh University. She created a lively, intelligent literary magazine for people who love reading, but hate academic and intellectual jargon.
From the start, Literary Review plugged in to the best and most exciting current writing. The reviewers are usually authors themselves, not just critics. In the 1980s, the new owner, Naim Attallah, secured award-winning journalist Auberon Waugh as editor. For fourteen years Auberon Waugh led the magazine and gave it the high profile it has today.
Nancy Sladek, who has been at Literary Review for ten years, is the current Editor. The monthly magazine is recognised as being intelligent, informative, and witty. It attracts the best writers in the country, many of them experts in their fields.
