    Clearly, having picked out Ian McEwan, William Boyd, Julian Barnes and Pat Barker before they were famous, the track record of Bill Bruford and the other judges who compiled the list of authors whose works appear here is pretty much unassailable It was a real pleasure to read the excerpts from Martin Amis Money and Julian Barnes Flaubert s Parrot here under the title Emma Bovary s Eyes both of which crackle and sparkle respectively as much as they did in 1983 For me William Boyd s Clearly, having picked out Ian McEwan, William Boyd, Julian Barnes and Pat Barker before they were famous, the track record of Bill Bruford and the other judges who compiled the list of authors whose works appear here is pretty much unassailable It was a real pleasure to read the excerpts from Martin Amis Money and Julian Barnes Flaubert s Parrot here under the title Emma Bovary s Eyes both of which crackle and sparkle respectively as much as they did in 1983 For me William Boyd s one of my favourite authors piece here was rather uneven but then, arguably, his early works were somewhat uneven he only really started to hit his stride critically and commercially in the 1990s.The real highlights for me came not from the big name now authors but from two writers that I hadn t heard of Lisa St Aubin De Ter n, whose The Five Of Us is excerpted from her book The Slow Train To Milan I found this piece enthralling and have subsequently read that book and two others she is perhaps my literary discovery of the year I also loved Christopher Priest s The Miraculous Cairn which was a quirky and, frankly, arousing story with a fantastic twist that I did not see coming.All in all, a great way of finding a new author to read even if they were first new in 1983

    Originally published in 1983, this anthology collects new fiction from the twenty writers judged to be the best of their generation The author roster is impressive and Granta s assessment has stood the test of time Among the authors here are Martin Amis, Pat Barker, Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie, and Graham Swift.Somewhat perversely, my favorite selections here were mainly written by the authors with whom I was less familiar Buchi Emecheta, Maggie Gee, Alan Judd, Adam Mars Jone Originally published in 1983, this anthology collects new fiction from the twenty writers judged to be the best of their generation The author roster is impressive and Granta s assessment has stood the test of time Among the authors here are Martin Amis, Pat Barker, Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie, and Graham Swift.Somewhat perversely, my favorite selections here were mainly written by the authors with whom I was less familiar Buchi Emecheta, Maggie Gee, Alan Judd, Adam Mars Jones, Shiva Naipaul, Christopher Priest, Rose Tremain, and A.N Wilson.This is a wide and varied collection of fine authors, and I can t imagine anyone would not find something or several somethings enjoyable and enlightening in this early issue of the noted British literary magazine
