Indeed, this is writing of the highest order. In any magazine, Granta included, there is usually some weak link or other, but here I found myself warming to every article. Highlights included Edward Platt's moving account of bird migrations over Israel and its occupied territories; Paul Farley and Niall Griffiths on life in Liverpool's peripheral new towns and Matthew Power on squatting in the Bronx. Richard Mabey on Yew trees sounds utterly obscure, but was as fascinating and expository a piece of writing as I will read all year. To me, these were all new names, but Granta has, for the first time in a while, done what it does best: introduce such writers to a wider audience. As an avowed Granta fan, my only hope is that incoming editor, Alex Clark, maintains such high standards.
