Reviews - What do customers think about Granta 97: Best of Young American Novelists 2 (Granta: The Magazine of New Writing)?

Unstable but worthwhile overall  Aug 11, 2008
The reason I bought this short story collection, the first one I've ever read, was that both Nicole Krauss and Jonathan Safran Foer have stories in it and because I wanted to discover a few more talented American authors. Well, considering that 11 of the writers featured on this collection are now on my To Read list, the book did its job.

As you might expect from a short stories collection, it has its ups and downs, some pieces are lengthier than they should have been and others made me question the reason for their inclusion on the collection.
While others, such as Olga Grushin's Exile, that features prose so beautiful that can be read as poetry, the unusual The Barn at the End of Our Term by Karen Russell, in which former Americans presidents are turned into horses and the Salingeresque In the Tunnel by John Wray made the whole experience worthwhile.
