From Granta does not have a political or literary manifesto, but it does have a belief in the power and urgency of the story, both in fiction and non-fiction, and the story’s supreme ability to describe, illuminate and make real. As the Observer wrote of Granta: ‘In its blend of memoirs and photojournalism, and in its championing of contemporary realist fiction, Granta has its face pressed firmly against the window, determined to witness the world.’

The Man Booker Prize

After reading The God of Small Things, it seems like a good opportunity to promote The Man Booker Prize  – my recent read is a past winner.

Nominations must come from authors who are citizens of the Commonwealth or the Republic of Ireland The book must be published in the United Kingdom for the first time in the year of the prize. The novel must be an original work in English (not a translation) and must not be self-published.
