Overview

You can't choose your relatives. But you can love them, loathe them, rage against them or take after them.

More About This Book

Overview

You can't choose your relatives. But you can love them, loathe them, rage against them or take after them. Right from the earliest issue of Granta, writing about the family, whether as fiction or personal memoir, has been one of the magazine's strongest elements. Some of the finest pieces from the first fifteen years, 1979 to 1994, were collected in the first Granta Book of the Family, published in 1995. Now, this second volume brings together a new collection of pieces from 1995 to the present, all of which explore the complicated, often fraught relationships that families involve.

The New Granta Book of the Family includes A.L. Kennedy on 'battling' Joe Price, the grandfather she loved, Linda Grant on her struggle with her mother in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, A.M. Homes on finally metting her biological father, Robyn Davidson on her unexpected 'marriage' to Eddie, an Aborigine, Anna Pyasetskaya's heartbreaking search for her son's body during the chaos of the Chechen war, and David Goldblatt's attempts to cope with the aftermath of his father's murder. It also includes stories by John McGahern, Blake Morrison, Hilary Mantel, Orhan Pamuk, Graham Swift, Jayne Anne Phillips, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Raymond Carver. This is a book rich with experience and wisdom, which contains some of the best writing in English.
