"It’s a huge pleasure to be able to introduce you to the new issue of Granta, for which we’ve chosen the theme of fathers. One of the most rewarding aspects of editing the issue was the imaginative responses we had from the writers we worked with – whether they were writing a piece of memoir or investigation (like Ruchir Joshi or Francesca Segal), an essay on the nature of fatherhood (see Siri Hustvedt’s ‘My Father Myself’), or responding to a favourite photograph, as in our ‘Portrait of my Father’ series. The issue also features short stories that draw for inspiration on caterpillars, elephants and mambo music. "
