Granta 128 from the Author: Sigrid Rausing. When every inch of land has been conquered, when every place has been mapped, what is left to explore? This issue of Granta goes into the American wild, metaphorical and real. 'I found in my absence that I had missed two visitors: one left me nothing I could know them by; the other must have been a woman, judging by the gift of wood-shavings and pale grasses she had picked and twisted into a bouquet that lingered on my table.' - Andrew Motion, 'A Meeting of Minds with Henry David Thoreau' And Martin Amis, Thomas McGuane, Melinda Moustakis, Adam Nicolson, Mona Simpson, Claire Vaye Watkins, Callan Wink and others.

Granta 4 Sp Ken from the Author: Aase Berg. Följ med till den andra sidan. Det spökar på sidorna i Granta #4. Från krigets Irak, som hemsöker marinsoldaten i Phil Klays novell, till Sara Stridsbergs krisdrabbade amerikanska spökstad, Ulrika Kärnborgs kollapsade paraguayanska utopi och Johanne Lykke Holms kusliga seans i centrala Köpenhamn. Aase Berg och Fredrik Sjöberg gör upp med tro och vidskeplighet, Karin Tidbeck tar strid för hårt drivna spökskrivare och Janine di Giovanni möts av de döda när hon återvänder till Sarajevo nästan tjugo år efter belägringen. Svenska Granta är del av ett internationellt nätverk med engelskspråkiga Granta som nav. Tidskriften grundades av studenter i Cambridge i slutet av 1800-talet. År 1979 fick den sin nuvarande form som en arena för nyskriven skönlitteratur och litterära reportage. I dag finns Grantaredaktioner i ett tiotal länder världen över, från Kina till Brasilien.

Entangled Subjects from the Author: Michèle Grossman. Indigenous Australian cultures were long known to the world mainly from the writing of anthropologists, ethnographers, historians, missionaries, and others. Indigenous Australians themselves have worked across a range of genres to challenge and reconfigure this textual legacy, so that they are now strongly represented through their own life-narratives of identity, history, politics, and culture. Even as Indigenous-authored texts have opened up new horizons of engagement with Aboriginal knowledge and representation, however, the textual politics of some of these narratives – particularly when cross-culturally produced or edited – can remain haunted by colonially grounded assumptions about orality and literacy. Through an examination of key moments in the theorizing of orality and literacy and key texts in cross-culturally produced Indigenous life-writing, Entangled Subjects explores how some of these works can sustain, rather than trouble, the frontier zone established by modernity in relation to ‘talk’ and ‘text’. Yet contemporary Indigenous vernaculars offer radical new approaches to how we might move beyond the orality–literacy ‘frontier’, and how modernity and the a-modern are Productively entangled in the process.

The Literature Of The Indian Diaspora from the Author: Vijay Mishra. The Literature of the Indian Diaspora constitutes a major study of the literature and other cultural texts of the Indian diaspora. It is also an important contribution to diaspora theory in general. Examining both the ‘old’ Indian diaspora of early capitalism, following the abolition of slavery, and the ‘new’ diaspora linked to movements of late capital, Mishra argues that a full understanding of the Indian diaspora can only be achieved if attention is paid to the particular locations of both the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ in nation states. Applying a theoretical framework based on trauma, mourning/impossible mourning, spectres, identity, travel, translation, and recognition, Mishra uses the term ‘imaginary’ to refer to any ethnic enclave in a nation-state that defines itself, consciously or unconsciously, as a group in displacement. He examines the works of key writers, many now based across the globe in Canada, Australia, America and the UK, – V.S. Naipaul, Salman Rushdie, M.G. Vassanji, Shani Mootoo, Bharati Mukherjee, David Dabydeen, Rohinton Mistry and Hanif Kureishi, among them – to show how they exemplify both the diasporic imaginary and the respective traumas of the ‘old’ and ‘new’ Indian diasporas.

Tedious Brief Tales Of Granta And Gramarye from the Author: Ingulphus. CLASSIC EARLY HORROR IN THE STYLE OF MR JAMES BY A FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE ""This Society consisteth of seven Everlastings, who may be Corporeal or Incorporeal, as Destiny shall determine."" So dictates the first rule of The Everlasting Club, the ghastly and debauched history of which is faithfully recorded herein. Assembled alongside are further narratives of supernatural misadventure and menace, including the curious tale of the death of mathematician Thomas Allen, possible necromancer, definite murder victim; the story of the final days of alchemist Anthony Fryar, discoverer of the Magisterium - the 'master-cure for all human ailments', but sadly not soon enough; and Matthew Makepeace's cautionary tale of unforeseen regret wrought from the dark art of soul transference. These and more ghoulish, macabre classics are reproduced as originally presented in 1919, in this deliciously dark collection. Stunning, digitally re-mastered illustrations 'Ingulphus' was the pseudonym of Arthur Gray (1852-1940), Master of Jesus College, Cambridge from 1912-40. It is this location that acts as the setting for the series of stories originally written for magazines and then collected as Tedious Brief Tales of Granta and Gramarye. A contemporary of M.R. James, Gray wrote these stories in similar style as a compliment to the King's College Provost. With digitally remastered illustrations and a completely re-set text, Oleander's reproduction of this long-lost and much sought-after collection of ghost stories is bound to delight lovers of this classic style of supernatural literature.

Reading Rushdie from the Author: M. D. Fletcher. Salman Rushdie is perhaps the most important writer of the present time. His significant and controversial literary interventions in debates on post-colonial culture and contemporary South Asian Islam are matched by the contribution he has made to postmodern literature in the West (culminating in the award to him in 1993 of the twenty-fifth-anniversary Booker of Bookers prize).This collection of articles focuses on Rushdie's five novels. The context is set by the introduction, The Politics of Salman Rushdie's Fiction, which discusses the political stance of Rushdie's fiction, the various influences on his work, and the textual strategies and techniques he employs, for political expression and cultural critique. The postmodern/post-colonial interface, the carnivalesque, and satire are major themes treated here and in the articles that follow, which also provide diverse other perspectives on Rushdie's thought and method. A number of essays have been commissioned specially for this volume. An appendix listing selected writings by Rushdie and articles on the Satanic Verses Affair is followed by a comprehensive bibliography annotating critical studies of Rushdie's work.

Linked Histories from the Author: Wendy Faith. Postcolonialism is the fastest growing area of study in English & the site of vigorous contention & vociferous debate. These essays explore the pressing issues & challenges that new theories of globalisation present for postcolonial studies, including the difficulties of rethinking how marginality' might be defined in a new globalised world & the problems of imagining social transformation within globalisation. The essays have been assembled with the intention to 'think through' the issues rather than provide definitive statements. This collection offers fresh, accessible scholarship as well as an informative & useful introduction for those new to the field. These wide-ranging articles bring together contributions from today's noted scholars as well as those who represent the next generation, taking up some of the most pressing issues of postcolonial debate. The contributors, from five countries, offer varied & diverse perspectives.
