Here’s a preview of what they’ll find coming their way

Believer Issue 143
In Issue 143 of The Believer, Katie Gee Salisbury searches for the true originators of cinema’s most famous Asian detective; public educator Lauren Markham reports on America’s homeschooling surge; and Anika Banister tracks Garfield’s transition from syndicated comic to viral meme muse. We have feature interviews with Jeff Daniels, Gene Luen Yang, Nathaniel Dorsky, and Annie-B Parson, plus a micro-chat with Noor Naga. Also, Ken Howe revisits his decade-long hunt for every volume in the New York Edition of Henry James, and Mallika Rao unpacks the female ingenuity behind a Turkmen carpet. You’ll find more from the usual suspects, Nick Hornby and Carrie Brownstein, as well as guest columns by Deb Olin Unferth and Maris Kreizman. Also: a new comic about an odd bird from Teddy Goldberg, author trivia typewritten by Joy Williams herself, poems, reviews, and even more.
