I have two copies of this magazine here with me at Dartmouth, but I've only read a few articles total. That's not because I find them dull—N+1 magazine is exactly what I'm looking for—deep engagement with and analysis of the major intellectual trends current or, in a very odd sense, popular today. It's run by a bunch of young turks, people who are scrambling over themselves to give the sleekest, most arch, and most important opinion. That makes for a sometimes aggravating read—self-importance is always rhetorically annoying; I should know—but nevertheless fascinating.

N+1 also has online content; here is a good article about Giorgio Agamben, who it looks like I might have to read.
