Description
Granta 113, published simultaneously in Spain as Los Mejores Narradores Jovenes en Espanol, showcases the work of 22 promising new writers. It is eagerly anticipated, as Granta's previous Best Young Novelist issues have been startlingly accurate, calling out the work of writers from Salman Rushdie to Jonathan Franzen and Zadie Smith.
Here, for the first time in translation, we predict the literary stars of the future.
