Item description for Granta 84: Over There: How America Sees the World (Granta: The Magazine of New Writing) by Ian Jack...

The USA is the worlds newest, greatest, and only empire. Some would say it is the worlds most insular state as well as the most powerful, never troubling to correct its ignorance of the people and places beyond its borders. Is it a slander? In this issue of Granta, American writers describe their encounters abroad and how they were affected by them. In reportage and fiction, outsiders to America come upon the strangeness of the place itself. Included are James Buchan in America's Hometown, Edmund White meeting his first European, Paul Theroux as a sexual prisoner in Africa, Nell Freudenberger making a mistake in Laos, Luc Sante getting that old-time religion, and James Kelman in trouble with the natives. There are also recollections and forecasts from Eric Schlosser, A. M. Homes, Chris Hedges, Paula Fox, Gary Shteyngart, Paul Fussell, Adam Hochschild, J. Robert Lennon, Studs Terkel, Jacki Lyden, Chalmers Johnson and many more. Surprising new maps of America by Martin Rowson, a photographic essay by Anthony Suau, and new stories by Judith Hermann and Julian Barnes are also featured.

Reviews - What do customers think about Granta 84: Over There: How America Sees the World (Granta: The Magazine of New Writing)?

Great Edition of a Great Magazine!  Mar 27, 2004
There are some really great stories in this edition. Some are memories of being American in other parts of the world at significant times in history, others recount American lifestyles right here. My favorite story is about a Thai worker at an island resort for farangs (foreigners) and his devotion to his pet pig named Clint Eastwood.
