What are the ethics of writing about a place you visit only briefly and view with the eyes of an outsider? With Granta's long tradition of travel writing in mind, we ask some of the world's best writers: is travel writing dead? Plus: William Atkins investigates a killing across the US-Mexico border Xan Rice goes back to school in South Africa A brand new story from Edna O'Brien David Flusfeder visits record factories in Detroit and California All the way up London's Holloway Road with Tim Adams Colin Grant trains as a doctor in 1980s London
Published in book form four times a year, Granta is respected around the world for its mix of outstanding new fiction, poetry, reportage, memoir, photography and art.
