Granta 135: New Irish Writing (The Magazine of New Writing)

A century ago the Irish took up arms to end British rule - the Easter Rising marked the beginning of a period of drastic social and political changes that continue to reverberate through Irish life. Aesthetically, too, it has been a century of great experimentation, exploration and evolution. Granta 135: New Irish Writing celebrates one of the most distinguished literary traditions from a contemporary perspective, showcasing new writing from up-and-coming talent as well as from the country's most established voices. An issue of fiction, memoir, reportage, poetry, photography and art that will chart the many places, identities and stories that make up a nation, 'New Irish Writing' features Colin Barrett, Kevin Barry, Sara Baume, Lucy Caldwell, Mary Costello, Paul Muldoon, Colm Toibin and many others.
