Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Through fiction, reportage, memoir, diaries, and photography, this Granta looks at coping — stoically, madly, badly — with private and public disaster, from the agonies of adolescence to the bombing of Belgrade. Including James Buchan, Ian Jack, Edward Said, Jasmina Tesanovic, Edmund White, and Joy Williams. Plus new fiction from Zadie Smith and a photo essay by Larry Towell on the people who kept the manners and morals of the twentieth century at bay.

Synopsis:

How do we cope with the public and private disaster? Jasmina Tesanovic on being bombed in Belgrade — "The Diary of a Political Idiot"; Ian Jack on good behavior aboard the Titanic; Joy Williams on the necessary death of her dog Hawk; Edward Said on the shame of his body; James Buchan inside Saddam's Iraq. Plus: Edmund White, and the debut of a novelist unknown when this issue was published — Zadie Smith.
