Between 1957 and 1984, it brought together new voices, ideas, and images from around the world. Newsweek magazine said, “Evergreen Review was one of the most important literary periodicals in the United States . . . where some of the best authors sought to deliver themselves alive and burning onto the printed page.”
Evergreen Review defined the coming-of-age for two generations of writers presenting a cultural treasure for anyone seeking a greater appreciation for the forces at work in America's cultural and political landscape from the late 1950s till the early 1980s.
