The Adamovich File: Marina Adamovich, a journalist by education, has served as editor-in-chief of the quarterly Novyi Zhurnal (The New Review), a storied émigré journal based in New York, since 2005. The New Review publishes contemporary and classic poetry and a broad selection of prose, including fiction and nonfiction pieces about history, language, and literature. Adamovich has written essays and critical pieces for other “thick” Russian journals, including Kontinent, Novyi mir, and Znamia.
Psssst………: Adamovich said in an interview that New Review’s goal was established in its first issue, in 1942, as, “Russia. Freedom. Emigration,” adding that, “Nothing has changed” but noting a bit later that, in a globalized world, emigration and immigration have shifted to migration. New Review was forbidden in the Soviet Union.
