Granta 141 – Edited by M. Thien and C. Leroux)

Granta 141 - Edited by M. Thien and C. Leroux) .jpgGranta is a prestigious literary magazine/book, published for more than 100 years. Granta 141 is the first publication devoted exclusively to Canadian writers. Madeleine Thien and Catherine Leroux reviewed more than 1000 submissions to choose 28: short stories, some poetry, photo essays, and such. What is striking is the diversity of writing and there are some gems: Lisa Moore, Alexander MacLeod, Margaret Atwood and others. Overall an impressive collection, variable according to my tastes but a very worthwhile snapshot of the Canadian literary scene.
