WHAT IS THE CARIBBEAN REVIEW OF BOOKS?
The Caribbean Review of Books (CRB) is a quarterly magazine, and the only publication exclusively covering new Caribbean books and writing, for readers interested in the regional literary scene. The Caribbean Review of Books was also officially incorporated as a non-profit company in 2 March, 2007 under the Companies Act (1995) in the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago. Since its launch in 2004, the CRB has been supported by Media and Editorial Projects (MEP) Ltd. Our other current partners include the Prince Claus Fund.
The original CRB was published in the early 1990s by the University of the West Indies Publishers' Association in Mona, Jamaica. Media and Editorial Projects (MEP), with no source of external funding, has undertaken to revive the CRB as a publication supported by subscriptions and advertising. The revived CRB was launched with a special pilot issue in May 2004, with regular issues following every three months.
Each issue includes reviews of new and recent writing of Caribbean interest (about the Caribbean or written by Caribbean authors): novels and poetry collections, plays and films, biographies and memoirs, books about history, art, culture, politics, and current affairs, reviewed with intelligence and vigour for non-academic, non-specialist readers. The CRB also includes new fiction and poetry and essays about Caribbean literature and culture. http://www.meppublishers.com/online/crb
