GRANTA - 100th Issue

Look what arrived in the mail this week...yes, the 100th issue of Granta magazine. This has to be one of the best short story literary magazines around and the this 100th issue is jam packed with 32 great stories and poems.
Here is the blurb from the Granta site:
In 1979, a young American graduate revived an old Cambridge university magazine and created a home for good writing of all kinds—reportage, fiction, memoir, biography—as well as photography and, occasionally, poetry. In the years that followed, Granta established itself on both sides of the Atlantic, and continues to publish the best new writing in English from all over the world. This special issue celebrates Granta’s 100th issue.
