Welcome to the redesigned Millions website, rolled out just in time for our 20th anniversary. To celebrate two decades of essential literary criticism and coverage, this month we’ve queued up some especially exciting reviews, essays, and interviews that exemplify the kind of writing The Millions does best: clear-eyed and voice-driven, thoughtful and thought-provoking. Here’s a small taste of what’s in store, updated with links as they go live:
Lawrence Wright reflects on the legacy of Larry McMurtry. Graphic essayist Lena Moses-Schmitt ponders the matrilineal comforts of Joanna Biggs’s A Life of One’s Own. Colin Ainsworth debuts a new column on Mad Men’s literary cameos. GD Dess takes on Dime Square dramatist Matthew Gasda. Grace Bialecki turns herself into a TikTok poet. Jasmine Attia revisits the work of forgotten Egyptian writer Ihsan Abdel Quddous. Jennifer Savran Kelly meditates on the pleasures of bookbinding, and much more. Our founder C. Max Magee spotlights his favorite Millions pieces from over the years. Plus, we talk with Min Jin Lee, Maria Bamford, Lan Samantha Chang, and Vauhini Vara.
Thanks for sticking with us for two decades. I’ll be sharing more thoughts on our anniversary—and future of the site—in the coming weeks, but suffice it to say, The Millions owes everything to its readers—to you.
