Terrific Issue! Feb 18, 2007
This Granta issue was tops! We Went to Saigon, a story about a woman who visited her father in Saigon during the Vietnam War. She never knew what he did, but he said jokingly that he was a CIA Agent. True or Not? I enjoyed the story about Natasha, a Ukrainian woman desperate to leave Ukraine and marry an American, who eventually dumps a guy because he is a big fan of Bruce Springsteen, not one of her favorite musicians by a long shot. Another article persuades that North by Northwest is not about the character Cary Grant plays in the movie, so much as his suit. An interesting concept. Other great stories about traveling in Russia, Italy and Turkey are also included. A really great read.
