'The weekend her father left — left the house, the town, the country, everything, packing so lightly I believed he would come back — he said 'You can raise Nickie by yourself. You'll be good at it.
   And I had said, 'Are you on crack?' And he replied, continuing to fold a blue twill jacket, "Yes, a little."
—Lorrie

'Hey,' Paul yelled out. 'Why's everybody talking behind the patient's back?'
   'Shut up, we're having sex,' she called back. She poured a cup for herself. 'He seems pretty chipper this morning.'
   'Yeah, I don't know what to hope for,' I said. 'Quality, I guess. And then not too much quantity.'
—David Gates

'If everything we said had been a poem, the index of first lines would have formed a pattern: 'Do you remember', 'Tell me if I remember wrong', 'There was that time', 'Wasn't it funny when' —Anne Beattie

And Abeer Ayyoub, Bernard Cooper, Olivia Laing, Laura Kasischke, Thomas McGuane, Colin McAdam, Katherine Faw Morris, Melinda Moustakis, Norman Rush, Edmund White and Joy Williams

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Granta is not for the sluggish of mind or conventional of expectation. Fiction, nonfiction, poetry and photography bump and rub and jostle inside each issue, and sometimes you’re not quite sure what you’re reading until you’ve finished it – if then. The mystery is part of the excitement’ Chicago Tribune

The recent editions of Granta have all done what a good literary magazine should: showcase the newest by the best authors and the best by the newest authors -  Scotland on Sunday

I read more than a few of these pieces again immediately. This issue is the most powerful and beautiful Granta I have read.
