Review


"These stories and others, stitched together between well-chosen art and a brilliant and heartbreaking photo essay by Darcy Padilla, offer a package that’s as aesthetically pleasing as intellectually exciting."

-- Daily Beast

I wish they would keep publishing but I gather they have left the world of print publishing...

Every story a masterpiece. Exquisite writing...! Thoroughly enjoyed this collection. Many stories are excerpts from books but some are new and complete stories. The anthology brings together young British writers - most of them it would seem from the former colonies. Worth every cent.

Granta is a great showcase for new and established writers to display their work. The themed issues are particularly good

A great collection. I loved Mohsin Hamid's Don't Fall in Love, which I suppose is an excerpt from his novel but it fit beautifully here (and love of course being the ultimate betrayal, regardless of how the affair concludes).

The title piece, Seven Days in Syria will stay with me for a very long time. It's compelling in that it is hard to look away from the page, and from the enormous suffering described. I cannot think of what it did to the person who wrote it. Its a sacrifice that Janine di Giovanni makes on the behalf of people far less courageous than her.
