he Oxford American
It would be easy to dismiss the Oxford American as a "literary journal" - well-written and engaging fiction, essays, and poetry - if it just weren't so relevant and provocative. The Oxford American does not pander to contemporary culture but reforms its essence into the magazine's own vision - reasoned, intelligent, and uncompromising, but always a good read. US $19.95/yr. (6 issues)
