Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series offers a visual cornucopia of narratives, all of which say something about political and social issues, arts, and culture in America. Giving it much of its richness are the in-depth profiles of people it has spotlighted, including renowned performance artist Marina Abramović, underground Los Angeles chef Craig Thornton, and Cassandro, a gay star of Mexican lucha libre wrestling.

Some of the selections are delightfully entertaining, while other works will leave you thinking more about the world around you and the people in it. No doubt that fans of the magazine will enjoy the visual interpretations of the literary articles and modern fiction they've read over the years, but you don't have to be a reader to appreciate the amount of delicious food for thought it offers.

Did we miss something on diversity?
