The London Review of Books (or LRB) is a fortnightly British literary and political magazine.

The LRB was founded in 1979 during the year-long lock-out at The Times. Its founding editor was Karl Miller, then professor of English at University College London, Mary-Kay Wilmers, formerly an editor at The Times Literary Supplement, and Susannah Clapp, a former editor at Jonathan Cape. For its first six months it appeared 'marsupially' as an insert in the New York Review of Books. In May 1980, the London Review became an independent publication with a self described 'consistently radical' editorial orientation.
