Don’t Miss: Apology Magazine

A Vice magazine alum’s cool new quarterly.


After working at hipster bibles like Index and Vice, journalist Jesse Pearson, 37, is launching Apology—a smart quarterly of “literature, reportage, art, and humor”—this month. Pearson says the publication is a “rectification” of sorts for his youthful transgressions—a reference perhaps to Vice’s infamous interviews with nubile nude girls, among other controversial pieces. Apology’s cool-kid photography by Ryan McGinley and Roe Ethridge, and humorous riffs by Lesley Arfin and Chelsea Peretti, will be supplemented by such features as a lengthy discussion on the semicolon (“an endangered animal”) and a revealing visit with poetry’s éminence grise John Ashbery.
