Granta Legacies of Love What happens after you fall in love The essays and fiction in this issue of Granta look at the risk and reward of loving someone Whatever Happened to Interracial Love by the late African American film
One of the strongest issues of Granta this year, centering on love of all sorts of family, home, country, body, soul and mind.Amazing choices from all over the world, too I ached looking at Jacob Sobol s photographs from Greenland, of the icy life of the village and his lover, Sabine Just amazing.Kathleen Collins raised in relative wealth in NYC, she muses on the interweavings of black and white in the 1960s Powerful stuff.Emma Cline and where is Arcadia How to fit into a family by mar One of th [...]
Granta used to be a surprise and a delight, sort of like a longer version of Harper s Readings Here the stories are as committed to uneventfulness under the sacred writ of lit fic, but without the wordplay to shore them up Take a tale about a lonely drunk who moves into a farm house, strikes up a friendship with an illiterate neighbor kid, and helps him by making him read Tolstoy to her It pretty much ends the way you d expect, only toned down because that s soooo easily confused with subtlet Gr [...]
One of the worst Grantas ever 135 was filled with perceptive, clever, meaningful Irish writing This, except for the last two stories, reads like a really bad MFA writing program rejection pile Dull, plodding, mostly pointless I m embarrassed for American writers Get out and live.
Interesting collection and well curated different aspects of love and loss, and their relationship to each other, examined in a variety of contexts The collection was bookended almost by two pieces that use love loss to examine racial contexts Kathleen Collins whatever happened to interracial love addresses a moment in the 1960s where the tension of interracial relations was being addressed and embraced Pwaangulongii Dauod s Africa s Future Has No Space For Stupid Black Men address Interesting c [...]
I m working on an exciting little project with Granta and they were nice enough to send me some reading to understand what they are about Legacies of Love are one of their magazines and this one is on the theme of taboo love.What I loved about it was that no two stories were the same They all stood out on their own and there were mixtures of prose and poetry though a lot of the stories didn t really excite me.
Another solid collection from Granta Interior Monkeyboy by Patrick Flanery and The Tenant by Victor Lodato are stellar Melissa Lee Houghton s poem is a kick and the penultimate story about Syrian refugees is heartbreaking, infuriating, and hopeful, altogether.Well done
Excellent writing and short stories of all types of loveom all over the world
