The Common Review is the online literary magazine of the Great Books Foundation.

History and profile

The Common Review was started as a quarterly publication in Fall 2011. The founder was the former Great Books Foundation president Peter Temes. The magazine specializes in nonfiction essays and articles "about the books and ideas that matter", as well as reviews of new books, letters, and editorials.

Daniel Born was the launching editor of the magazine. He served in the post until the Fall 2010 issue when Danny Postel was named new editor. Some of the notable writers and poets featured in the magazine have included Gerald Graff, Nat Hentoff, Phillip Lopate, Joseph Epstein, Carl Rakosi, David Sloan Wilson, Julia Kasdorf, and Michael Bérubé.

The magazine has been twice nominated for the Utne Independent Press Awards, in 2003 (Arts/Literary coverage), and in 2006 ("Best Writing"). The magazine ended the print quarterly edition with the Fall/Winter 2011 issue and went on online.
