India – that is subject of the latest edition of Granta, a British literary magazine founded in 1899 in Cambridge University.
The India special has stories, poems, photos and artwork by new and well-known folks like Upamanyu Chatterjee, Neel Mukerjee, Kalpana Narayanan, Aman Sethi, Hari Kunzru, Anjali Joseph, Gauri Gill, Rajesh Vangad and others.
A few of the works are available online for free. For example Anjali Joseph’s “First Sentence” captures that never-ending dilemma of how to grab a reader’s attention with that first line. Then there is an extract from Hari Kunzru’s new novel “Drone”
The India special is edited by Ian Jack, who was previously an editor of Granta.
Here is an interview with Jack on the special India edition of Granta.
