“En Attendant Nadeau” is a free online journal which appears every second Wednesday. It focusses on taking a critical and independent look at literature, ideas and the arts, in the conviction that it is essential to read books to understand the issues of our world, essential to make the journal a space where choice, recognition of new things, freedom and confidence have their place. To respond to the flow of information and direct statements, immediate and often unchecked, reviews help indirect, cross-disciplinary and reflective discourse.
