It looks an unpromising set of contributions but actually this edition hangs together very well. The theme, obviously, is love and the highlights are The Tenant by Victor Lodato and Arcadia by Emma Kline. The Tenant is a short story that looks at the long term impact a wealthy renter has on the life of the teenage son of the hard scrabble landlord family which is very engaging but might have been better without the rather forced conclusion. In Arcadia, Emma Kline has an interesting work in progress about rural kids and itinerant workers somewhere on the US West Coast. Oh and Claire Hajaj's piece "A Syrian Escape" is heartbreaking ( )

Stories that stick out:
Potted Meat - down and out in WV
Interior Monkeyboy - adapting to adoption
The Tenant - itinerant woman settles down, slightly knocks the future off kilter with kindness to landlord's son
A Syrian escape - just what it says ( )

Not one of the better editions. I normally find that a Granta will have several pieces that I really enjoy. This one had no stand outs, and I found some of the contributions a bit underwhelming. ( )
