Publisher Comments:

A little over a decade ago Granta devoted an issue to new fiction by the twenty writers it judged to be the Best of Young American Novelists. The writers then included Sherman Alexie, Edwidge Danticat, Jeffrey Eugenides, Jonathan Franzen and Lorrie Moore.

Who are their equivalents as writers of promise and achievement today? Over the course of a year, six judges read and deliberated and eventually chose twenty-one, all of them under the age of thirty-five.

Issue 97 of Granta magazine, Best of Young American Novelists 2, is devoted to their new work — a revealing insight into a new generation of American writing which shows, beside its talent, what bothers and inspires the imagination of modern America.

Review:

"A list that sets the literary agenda for a generation." Observer

Synopsis:

In 1996, Granta's first Best of Young American Novelists issue included Jeffrey Eugenides, Jonathan Franzen and Lorrie Moore. Who will match them in the new generation? This special issue features original work by the twenty-one writers under thirty-five who Grantas judges (including novelists Edmund White and A.M. Holmes) have selected as the most interesting new young voices in American fiction.

In 1996, "Granta"Us first issue included Jeffrey Eugenides, Jonathan Franzen, and Lorrie Moore. This special issue features original work by 20 writers under 35 years old who have been selected as the most interesting new voices in American fiction today.
