I received a free copy of this issue for an honest review.
I’m not much of a magazine reader so when I was asked to review the Aug/Sept issue of The London Magazine I was a bit skeptical but I figured, “Why not?”
This isn’t your typical magazine. There are very few ads and it is full of poems, short stories, essays, and reviews. I particularly liked the short stories, some of the poetry, and My London, a series in which writers describe what London has meant to them.
I recommend The London Magazine if you like to read literature with a little more substance. It would be good to take places where you have to wait for a while.
