Reviews - What do customers think about Granta 100 (Granta: The Magazine of New Writing)?
Granta 100 Mar 23, 2008
What a fantastic way to experience new writing! William Boyd is one of my favourite authors, and to read a collection that has been edited by him is great. Some of the authors were not to my liking, but then this is the advantage of reading a compilation..you can skip the excerpts that don't engage you and read on. This purchase was one of my better ones and as a result of reading this, I went to my local book store and bought several back issues. In fact, this book is so good that I have bought myself a subscription.
