About the Believer

The Believer is a bimonthly magazine where length is no object. There are pieces on books that are not necessarily timely, and that are very often very long. There are interviews that are also very long. We will focus on writers and books we like. We will give people and books the benefit of the doubt. The working title of this magazine was The Optimist.
