Synopsis

Granta 78: Bad Company by Ian Jack

A fiction special, introducing two new authors. Gary Shteyngart is not yet 30. His story, Several Anecdotes About My Wife , is a funny and scurrilous account of a young Russian immigrant's disastrous marriage to a native New Yorker. Jon McGregor works as washer-up in a Nottingham restaurant. His story Jonas is a lyrical and disturbing account of a mysterious death in the Anglian fens. This edition also includes new short stories by Rachel Cusk, Edmund White and Jonathan Ley. Other features include: Arthur Miller remembers his life at the Chelsea Hotel, with Brendan Behan and Dylan Thomas; Rory Stewart among the dervishes in Pakistan; Aleksander Hemon's return to Sarajevo; and a photographic essay by Deirdra O'Callaghan on the lost souls of Camden Town.
