From Nobel laureates to debut novelists, international translations to investigative journalism, each issue of Granta turns the attention of the world’s best writers onto the way we live now. Granta does not have a political or literary manifesto, but it does have a belief in the power and urgency of the story and its supreme ability to describe, illuminate and make real. Granta was founded in 1889 by students at Cambridge University as a periodical of student politics, badinage and literary enterprise. In this original incarnation it published the work writers like A.A. Milne, Michael Frayn, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath.
