‘The Dublin Review of Books is a wonderfully rich, intelligent, informative and, above all, literate online venture.’

“I love essays. Those explorations of all the big questions of the day – and some of the smaller ones – need elbow room, space which newspapers won’t give. That’s why we need the Dublin Review of Books.” – Olivia O’Leary
