Taking for Granta

I looked at my Granta collection and counted 64 issues. Three were stolen and five I stole from my friends. One I bought at its real price and the rest at a fraction of their cost from US to Thailand to Booksale and Diplomat. Two I stole from libraries. Granta just published its 100th issue. Everytime I take a trip I always bring one and I read about half of it when I return it. The ones I love are the earlier ones and the ones I hate are those that become provincial (too English). Next to New Yorker, Granta has the biggest effect on my becoming a writer.
