Loved the NYRB when growing up. Now, though, it seems to have a set of contributors on regular rotation. The same voices, given lots of space. Feels indulgent and of diminishing real insight.

Is the New York Review missing some brilliant contributors. How do I submit a piece to the New York Review?
