'The new issue contains excellent work themed around post-conflict fallout. Patrick French is terrifically indignant about growing up in an army family in thrall to remembrance culture. Overall, it's stirring stuff.' --Evening Standard
Superb --Sunday Herald
'Literary journals are like a box of chocolates: you never quite know what you're going to get, although in certain cases - notably that of Granta - you can be sure of uniform excellence and rare, unexpected delights. The journalism in this issue is superb. The Rainy Season by Lindsey Hilsum is a powerful and affecting account of her return to Rwanda. Justin Jin's Zone Of Absolute Discomfort is stark, beautiful and grotesque all at once' --New Zealand Herald
'After the War is one of the strongest editions in the magazine's long, illustrious history' --Tribune
