Describing itself as ‘The Magazine of New Writing’, Granta is more of a paperback book than a magazine, being of approximately the same size and having the same feel – plus it’s packed with fantastic writing.
Granta has featured some of the world’s top writers – the likes of Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan and Paul Theroux have all been published in it. It offers an excellent combination of short fiction, poems and memoirs, showcases both established writing talent and emerging authors, and deals with some of the big issues faced by the world today. Perfect for any literature lovers out there.

Here at Newsstand we think that Granta is the absolutely perfect magazine (well, book really – it’s as good as a book and possibly even more interesting) to take with you when you need something to occupy yourself – for example a long train journey.
There are many times in life that you will find yourself sitting down with nothing to do for long stretches of time – train journeys and travel in general are the most common examples. You need something to keep you occupied, but despite what you may think a novel is not the best way to go. A full, proper novel is something that you really need to get into, and with all the distractions and other people around you it can be difficult to fully involve yourself in the narrative.
What you need is Granta, offering up fiction and memoirs that are exactly the right length that you can feel like you’ve finished a satisfying story yet only take ten or so minutes, with the possibility of stopping at a moments notice with ease. Perfectly sized snacks, yet still literary cuisine of the highest order, an intriguing and winning combination that perfectly suits those moments when you just need something to read. It’s even perfectly sized to be carried with you as you travel. NB
