Women in the twenty-first century - from Kent to Accra - still live in a world in which the balance of power remains tipped towards men.This bold, political issue of Granta will explore this dynamic from a wide variety of literary genres and perspectives. Rachel Cusk provides a startlingly honest account of a marriage, its breakdown, and the aftermath; Caroline Moorehead gives voice to women who took part in the French Resistance - and were sent to Nazi death camps for their involvement. Urvashi Butalia writes of a male-to-female transsexual in India, who discovers all the obstacles of her adopted sex; A.S. Byatt lays bare the sexism of 1960s academia.The issue features new fiction from Edwidge Danticat, Julie Otsuka, Louise Erdrich and Jeanette Winterson. In 'Night Thoughts', Helen Simpson hilariously sends up all the sacred pieties of the male provider. 'The Sex Lives of African Girls', introduces an astonishing new voice, Taiye Selasi, who spins a haunting story about the way adult sexuality can be imposed upon the young.With award-winning reportage, memoir and fiction, over the years Granta has illuminated the most complex issues of modern life through the refractory light of literature. 'The F Word' will continue this tradition by addressing a theme many readers know has never lost its urgency.… (more)
