Exploded Views

Exploded Views is a series of probing, provocative essays that offer surprising perspectives on the most intriguing cultural issues and figures of our day. Longer than a typical magazine article but shorter than a full-length book, these are punchy salvos written by some of North America's most lyrical journalists and critics. Spanning a variety of forms and genres — history, biography, polemic, commentary — and published simultaneously in all digital formats and handsome, collectable print editions, this is literary reportage that at once investigates, illuminates and intervenes.

Exploded Views is curated and edited by Toronto-based editor and writer Jason McBride. McBride is a regular contributor to Hazlitt, Toronto Life, Maclean's, the Globe and Mail and Cinema Scope, among other publications. He is a co-founding editor of the uTOpia series at Coach House Books.
