Overview

Tin House is a beautifully designed periodical that features the best writers of our time alongside a new generation of talent poised to become the most important voices of the future. For the special 50th issue, Tin House has some fun with the idea of beauty, providing personal takes on what is "beautiful." The issue showcases fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that confront the notions of beauty across cultures, economic strata, genders, and races. What is beauty? What is art? Think of Francis Bacon: "There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion." This new issue also includes pieces that look into the marketing of beauty, and how notions of beauty are used to create celebrity, and at the same time to marginalize and exclude.

Content includes unique departments such as "Lost and Found," in which writers review overlooked or underrated books, and "Blithe Spirits" and "Readable Feast," which present tales and recipes for drinks and food in a literary way.
