Granta 91: Wish You Were Hereby Ian Jack
Synopses & Reviews
Thoughts about Alan while waiting for Harold, by Simon Gray The author of the celebrated and widely-acclaimed The Smoking Diaries returns to print with a tender, affecting, and of course funny account of his friendship with Alan Bates, written as he waits in Barbados for Harold Pinter to turn up.
PLUS: Said Sayrafiezadeh on the perils of having a socialist for a father, Simon Garfield on his obsession with faulty postage stamps, and Wayne McLennan on the Australian outback's last boxing nomads.
And Margaret Atwood, James Hamilton-Paterson, James Lasdun, Orhan Pamuk, Maarten 't Hart and Tim Winton on our changing weather.
With new fiction by Frederic Tuten and Gllad Evron, and a picture essay by Robin Grierson.
Granta 91 is about ordinary life in Africa now—without the gauze of sentiment or glare of media lights. Featuring new fiction from leading African writers, both established and new, including younger writers from the African diaspora such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Helon Habila. Plus Daniel Berger on the former Los Angeles cop now training Liberian police, John Ryle on Mussolini and the obelisk he stole from Ethiopia, and Andrew Rice on a Ugandan man in search of his son, kidnapped by rebels.
