Every issue is full to the brim with fascinating and engrossing articles. Bookforum specialises in insightful and intelligent reviews of written works, covering both fiction and non-fiction. Rather than simply questioning whether a books is good or not, instead Bookforum examines what the books reveals about the writer, about culture and the impact it has on society.

You there! Yes, you, the person reading that Harry Potter book, and by the way that grown-up cover is fooling no-one. Put down your petty fiction, your meaningless escapism and pick up something with a point instead. No, I don’t buy your argument that Harry Potter is a complex metaphor for the class system, detailing the haves and have-nots as the wizards and muggles, with Potter himself an example of a lower-class boy moving in an upper-class world. Although, now we think about it that does make sense…
Ahem, we may have got sidetracked there. What we meant to say was that the works featured in Bookforum are the things that you know you should be reading but aren’t. Fascinating, engrossing titles are reviewed and analysed in every issue of this great magazine and given the attention they deserve, yet still those books that can actually move us, that have a point, a message, a reason for their existence, are still routinely outsold by the latest Dan Brown novel. Well, here’s your chance to make a difference – pick up a copy of Bookforum, flick through it until you find a book you like the sound of and give it a proper go – we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
