Granta 120: Medicine

John Freeman (ed.)

An anthology of illness and its treatment.

Granta 120

This edition of Granta is themed around illness and its treatment.

As ever, my advice to the reader is to skip anything which is obviously fiction, and concentrate on the factual (some of which is first-person fiction, but it is impossible to tell unless you check the Granta website). There is some excellent stuff in there, particularly M.J. Hyland's very moving piece about being diagnosed with M.S., and Terrence Holt's piece, The Perfect Code, about working in a hospital emergency resuscitation unit.

  • …or, better still, buy or order a copy from your local, tax-paying independent bookshop, who could really do with the help.
