The fiction was decent, if not the most memorable (I did quite enjoy the one featuring poetry in the GDR). The reportage & essays about factory work was outstanding, though maybe that’s because I’ve been reading lots of labour stuff recently - others might find it tedious. But if you want to read about factory work in the 20th century, this issue of Granta is for you.
This volume from 2005 has a terrific story by Tessa Hadley and a wonderful memoir by Thomas Healey. Otherwise some pretty grim essays on factory work.
Beautiful imagery and reportage.
