    I don t often read anthologies, but the American Wild theme interested me This book has a broad appeal, and I particularly enjoyed the pieces by Melinda Moustakis, David Treuer, Adam Nicholson, and Thomas McGuane.


    Favorite Story The Mast Year Diane CookeHonorable Mention Exotics Callan Wink Thing with Feathers that Perches in the Soul Anthony Doerr Meditations on the history of an old cabin and the long marriage of two pioneers But listen To live for a minimum of seven years with a minimum of seven kids in two hundred square feet with no toilet paper or Netflix or Xanax requires a certain kind of imperturbability To adopt seven kids to not give out when snow is sifting through the cracks in the chinking t [...]


    It s not that the stuff is still here It s not that the house still stands It s that someone keeps the stuff on the shelves It s that someone keeps the house standing Anthony Doerr Now what the hell was that I have no idea Who knows where it came from and who knows how long it s been running All I know is that there s a dentist in Dallas who would pull his own eye teeth to have that thing hanging on his wall That s what we do here Callan Wink But here s some advice, fuck one and they ll think yo [...]


    This collection has some pretty solid fiction, my favorites being Exotics by Callan Wink and River So Close by Melinda Moustakis The standouts in the non fiction selections for me were Chasing Wolves in the American West by Adam Nicolson and Thing with Feathers that Perches in the Soul by Anthony Doerr.I cannot recall ever reading a piece in a Granta issue that I really didn t like, save a couple of poems that I didn t feel like putting the energy into understanding There have been stories or es [...]


    First time I bought a famous Granta magazine at the Brooklyn Bookfair The only story I liked A LOT was the first one by Anthony Doerr Genius I also liked The Mast Year very good.The rest was mostly solid fiction and some experimental stuff, both of which that didn t engage me at all, and although I tried to read each and all the other stories, I couldn t get past the first two pages of them Some, like Beyond sunset by Mary Ruefle I found pretentious to utterly silly Several played well the race [...]

    A sterling anthology, one of my favorites of the past several years.Granta always takes a reader in incredibly diverse directions.Sigrid Rausing did a rousing good job as editor.My favorites Things With Feathers that Perches in the Soul Anthony Doerr Exotics Colin Wink The Fighters David Treuer Chasing Wolves in the American West Adam Nicolson Grandma and Me Thomas McGuane The Mast Year Diane Cook No time now to comment individually except to say that the authors sense of purpose, detail, sardon [...]


    American Wild is a superb collection of stories, with a excellent collection of various genres Thing with Feathers and Chasing Wolves are both excellent non fiction meditations on life in the American West The Mast Year and Mirage are dystopian tales which would make JG Ballard proud Exotics and Grandma and Me evoke the wanderlust and slovenly sides of the American character, and Martin Amis s Self Portrait is a clever urban romp Highly recommended.

    T P Kennedy

    One of the best issues in a long time It s not the most original take on the topic but still well worth a read The combination of some very enjoyable fiction, a great photo essay and snippets of reportage works well It s worth it for David Truer s essay on violence cage fighting on a reservation What purports to be a straight essay contains insights into Indian culture and family life Andrew Motion s poetic take on Walden is good fun When Granta works, it works superb.


    The American Wild still exists even with all the urban sprawl of modern day America, there are still large swathes of land empty of human populations Highlights in this edition include River So Close, by Melinda Moustakis and the essay Chasing Wolves in the American West, by Adam Nicolson.


    Ho hum Uninspired and largely uninteresting wring in this issue Adan Nicholson s Chasing Wolves in the American West was the most interesting piece, but it seemed a bit too long nevertheless American Wild comes across as American Bore.

    Fiona Squires

    Especially enjoyed Mona Simpson s Holiday and the non fiction piece Chasing Wolves in the American West by Adam Nicolson.


    An enjoyable issue I particularly liked Diane Cook s story The Mast Year.
