    Is it worth 3 bucks? I’d love to read Dalrymple’s thoughts on this subject.

    Or will his New Criterion pieces later be released in books (like his Spectator ones?)

    The New Criterion (TNC) articles must be paid for, unless you have access to a university account: most unis have TNC in their library archives. But if you have the money, TNC is well worth the price: it’s really one of the best mags around.
