This is another entry in the occasional series where I own up to not having read something. Today I am owning up to not having read the literary quarterly ‘Magazine of New Writing’ Granta.
Nothing wrong with that you may say – literary quarterlies are often an acquired taste. The shocking thing is though that over the years, I’ve managed to acquire 32 issues of Granta – and I’ve not read a single one!!!
It’s attractively produced in the form of an overlarge paperback, and brilliant people write pieces for it, but there’s something intimidating about sitting down to read it somehow that has stopped me getting stuck in. Something I intend to remedy – well, eventually.
