Granta 125 (Paperback)

John Freeman


How long is the shadow of a battle, an explosion, a revolution? What stories arise in the wake of devastation? This issue explores the complicated aftermath and legacy of conflict. Lindsey Hilsum returns to Rwanda two decades after witnessing the beginning of genocide. Patrick French writes of a great-uncle whose heroism in World War I left behind a 'saturating cult of remembrance'. From air-raid drills in Paul Auster's America to a calf with a broken foot in Herta Muller's Rumania, this is how we live after the war. With new writing by Aminatta Forna, Romesh Gunesekera, A.L. Kennedy, Hari Kunzru, Yiyun Li, Thomas McGuane, poetry by Jean-Paul de Dadelsen, Ange Mlinko and Rowan Ricardo Phillips and photography by Dave Heath and Justin Jin.
