War in a Time of Peace: Bush, Clinton, and the Generals
This bold, political issue of Granta explores the dynamic between women and men from a wide variety of literary genres and perspectives.
A. L. Kennedy investigates the surprising ways in which the human voice can be trapped and unlocked. Sara Wheeler retraces the American travels of Fanny Trollope, who relocates to Ohio from England at the age of forty-eight and begins an improbable second life. Julie Otsuka contributes a powerful piece of fiction about mailorder brides from Japan arriving in the United States. And with “The Sex Lives of African Girls,” the issue will introduce an astonishing new voice, Taiye Selasi, who spins a haunting story about the way adult sexuality can be imposed upon the young.
With award-winning reportage, memoir, and fiction,Grantahas illuminated the most complex issues of modern life through the refractory light of literature.The F Wordwill continue this tradition by addressing a theme many readers know has never lost its urgency.
