Even old issues of Granta are on the edge of what's hot and new! This issue deals with death, both future and past. The series of short stories by some of the most hot authors around, all seem to flow easily from one story to the next. Includes Jeremy Harking, John Gregory Dunne, Eugene Richards, Edmund White, Teresa Pamies, Mary McCarthy, Adam Mars-Jones, Roger GTarfitt, Michael Ignatieff, John Treherne, William Cooper, Rudolf Schafer, Christopher Petit, and oddly enough Louise Erdrich. The photographs are all very moving and fit right in with the shorts. If you have ever sat still and wondered about your future fate, or reflected upon what comes at the end, this is a book worth reading -- if only for the reflections that it might cause you.
