The Daily


Last-Chance Bolaño

January 31, 2012 | by

“Compassionate, disturbing, and deeply felt ... tragic and beautiful.” —NPR

“A scathing novel with a lot of exuberance to it, not unlike the man who wrote it.” —The Economist

“Thoroughly, weirdly absorbing.” —The New York Times

That’s what the critics are saying about Roberto Bolaño’s lost novel, The Third Reich, which we serialized with original illustrations by Leanne Shapton. Over the course of four issues, we followed the adventures of Udo Berger, a young German who falls into louche company in an insalubrious resort on the Costa Brava—but of course, as a reader of The Paris Review, you know all about it.

But maybe you missed an installment. Maybe you left it on the beach. Maybe your sinister uncle stole a copy from your apartment.

Maybe you never subscribed at all.

Well, kids, you’re in luck.

Subscribe now* to The Paris Review, and receive all four installments—the entire Third Reich—plus three more issues to come. All for only $50.

That’s right: you’ll receive seven issues, 196 through 202, and catch up on our most popular installments to date.

Plus: interviews with Janet Malcolm, William Gibson, Nicholson Baker, and Jeffrey Eugenides; new work by Geoff Dyer, Jonathan Lethem, Frederick Seidel, and John Jeremiah Sullivan; and much more.

But don’t delay! This offer only lasts through February 7.

*Offer good for U.S. subscriptions only.

    Damned I’m Belgian. Nice offer though.

    I LOVED The Third Reich! This is a very good deal.

    I’m a digital subscriber and missed out on the first installment of The Third Reich. Is it possible to buy that in digital form? I’m happy to renew my annual subscription now. Best regards

    Dang! I just bought my subscription a month ago, I would have loved this offer. This doesn’t work as a renewal, does it?

  6. Nicole Rudick | February 2, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Daniel, I’m glad you asked. Yes, it would work as a renewal. Once you place your order, we’ll just add a year on to the end of your current subscription.

    And Steffen, unfortunately, we only started our digital issues with the Summer issue.

    Thank you so much Nicole!

    For Pete’s sake, what about Canada? Aren’t we included in the deal either?
