I guess the novelist issue just isn't for me. I like Granta for its longer nonfiction, and with none of those (nor poetry, photo series, etc) and extra length, I had to give up on this issue. A lot of the same myopic themes, some excerpts which I rarely enjoy, unfinished work... for the first time Granta felt like a chore. It would be better to cut it in half to around 10 selections at most, and even then to split them across two issues along with other content.

"I love you but I've chosen darkness" was very good. ( )
