Support The Paris Review: Membership

The Paris Review’s story began on a barge on the Seine in 1953. Though the Review has been based in New York since the Seventies, the excitement and the ambition of the magazine remain the same as in those early days: to promote the most exciting writers of the day and to support inquisitive readers the world over. In the past seven decades, an exceptional community has kept the magazine remarkable. We invite you to join this community.
