There's some weirdness in this book but also some illumination. Arthur Miller's tale about The Chelsea Hotel is worth buying it for alone.
Adrian Leftwich's 'I Gave The Names', Rory Stewart's 'Dervishes', Jonathan Tel's 'Zaghrouda' and Arthur Miller's 'The Chelsea Affect' are the obvious highlights in this issue.
I've gathered a few issues of Granta that I've spotted over the years, but this is the first I've read.I like the approach, the gathering of fact and fiction and pictures. I like the way they are loosely linked under a common theme.It's a great way to get a taster for authors, or longer books, to see if you like their style.My favourites from this issue were the Arthur Miller, the Jon McGregor and the Olga Tokarczuk.
I read this issue of Granta right when it came out as I had a subscription at the time. I have never been disappointed by the collections in this benchmark literary magazine, but this issue was awesome. I loved the theme and the various authors' interpretations. The mix of strong non-fiction, fiction in this issue was amazing. I recommend this mag to anyone who loves reading... it really offers something for everyone -- and how can you beat a book showing up in the mail every season?
I lovely selection of human and sad stories
Some brilliant pieces in this edition.
