Granta 108: "Chicago"

Granta's forthcoming issue is dedicated entirely to the city of Chicago, something they've done only once before with issue 65's dedication to London authors. It's a bit thrilling that this British literary magazine would take notice of all the wonderful writing that comes out of our city, out of all the cities in the US, but it is, of course, a notice that we feel is entirely warranted. Contributing authors include a slew of Book Club selection authors: Aleksandar Hemon, Sandra Cisneros, Stuart Dybek, Nelson Algren and many more. Here, Granta acting editor John Freeman gives a sneak peek of what will be in the issue, available September 22. And be sure to check our events sidebar as next week Granta will bring us a number of literary events in celebration of this issue.
