The Granta Book of the Family
The family: no relationship is more important, more powerful, or more enduring. Or potentially more destructive. Since the early 1980s, Granta has published fiction, memoir, biography, and reportage inspired by the most important institution in our lives. The best, and at times the most disturbing, pieces are collected here, including "Where He Was: Memories of My Father" by Raymond Carver; "Memoirs of a Bootlegger's Son" by Saul Bellow; "Sugar Daddy" by Angela Carter; "Ramadan" by Mona Simpson; "Impertinent Daughters" by Doris Lessing; "Family Album" by Mikal Gilmore; "The Names of Women" by Louise Erdrich; and "The Up Escalator" by Bret Easton Ellis.
