Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews is an American book review journal located at 770 Broadway in New York City. Founded in 1933 by Virginia Kirkus (1893-1980), it serves the book and literary trade sector, including libraries, publishers, literary and film agents, film and TV producers and booksellers. It is owned by The Nielsen Company and is part of Nielsen Business Media's US Music & Literary Group.

"Kirkus Reviews" is published on the first and 15th of each month. Reviews appear two to four months prior to a book's publication, and it features approximately 5,000 titles per year: fiction, mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, translations, nonfiction and children's and young-adult (YA) books. "Kirkus" has long been a respected, authoritative pre-publication review source within the literary and film industries.

As of 2008, Eric Liebetrau is the managing editor and nonfiction editor; Elaine Szewczyk is the fiction editor; Vicky Smith is the children's and YA editor.
