Granta 147 will be our Fortieth Birthday Special. This will be a celebratory issue featuring a collection of the best essays and fiction from the magazine's lauded history.
It has now been forty years since Bill Buford, Jonathan Levi and Peter de Bolla relaunched Cambridge University's student publication as the internationally renowned literary magazine we know today. In that time Granta has published 26 Nobel Prize for Literature winners, award-winning journalism from writers like Martha Gellhorn, Ryszard Kapuscinski and Svetlana Alexievich, defined new literary genres and paved the way for generations of young novelists.
In this special, celebratory issue of Granta, we will be republishing a selection of our favourite pieces from the magazine's distinguished archive, along with a selection of letters and photographs from behind the scenes. This will be a collector's issue and is not to be missed.
