Granta 121: Best of Young Brazilian Novelists
Granta, Nov 8, 2012 - Literary Collections - 272 pages
Since Granta's inaugural list of the Best of Young British Novelists in 1983 - featuring Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Martin Amis and Julian Barnes - the Best of Young issues have been some of the magazine's most influential. In 2010, Granta looked beyond the English-speaking world with Best of Young Spanish-Language Novelists. Now, with its first-ever issue fully translated from Portuguese in partnership with Granta em Português, the magazine continues its work of celebrating emerging talent from around the world. Submissions by young and promising authors from across Brazil have been read and discussed by a judging panel comprised of the country's foremost literary figures - including Manuel da Costa Pinto, coordinator of the Paraty Literary Festival, Cristovão Tezza is one of the most important writers in the country, and Benjamin Moser, author of a biography on Clarice Lispector. Their final choices will introduce the world to the diversity and uniqueness of Brazilian literature today.
