Diary of a Gulag Prison Guard - Ivan Chistyakov.
The Transition - Luke Kennard.
My Angel - Adam Thorpe.
Julie's Life - Emmanuel Carrere, Darcy Padilla (photos). ( )
  Moomin_Mama | Apr 10, 2017 |
I've been a bit slack in reading my Grantas recently - but this one is worthwhile. Particularly moving is Emmanuel Carriere's essay about Darcy Padilla and her 21 years of taking photographs of Julie Baird and her family, until Julie's untimely death from AIDS. So moving indeed, that I went immediately online to buy Padilla's book of "The Julie Project" - Family Love.

Also good are Miriam Toews on The Mennonites, Aatish Taseer's very thoughtful piece about the clash of tradition and modernism in India, and Adam Thorpe's fiction. The only lows are Ken Follett on growing up in the Plymouth Brethren (which sounds quite dull, but there is no need for a memoir about it to be dull as well), and Sarah Gerard on growing up in a family of Amway Distributors, a piece that feels cobbled together to meet a pressing deadline. But otherwise, a very good edition, focused on elements of religion and elements of faith in various forms ( )
