Granta 104: Fathers

This is another great collection from Granta. As usual, I preferred the non-fictional pieces, but that's just me.

Running throughout the volume are a series of pieces entitled Portrait of my Father by different writers, including Reina James, who is depicted on the cover with her father, the Carry On actor Sid James. There is also, rather bizarrely, a piece about tobacco pipes by Will Self, and a photo essay about amateur wrestlers in Runcorn.

Granta is a very good thing.

Note: I will receive a small referral fee if you buy this book via one of the above links.
