Recently, Granta has explored Chicago, Pakistan and the world of Spanish- language letters. In this bold, eclectic issue, the magazine turns back to focus on Britain. In 2012, Britain is a nation in flux, managing difficult socioeconomic realities, contending with new political alliances and negotiating shifting demographics. Yet it is a country that is still perceived as being bound by tradition and class structures. Is Britain still Great? Where does it stand in the New Europe? What will it become in the 21st century? With fiction, poetry, memoir and reporting from the best of Britain's authors as well as views from abroad, Granta's Britain will consider all these questions - and raise more.
