From The Publisher*This issue of Granta is about the difference between the world as we see it and the world as it actually is, beyond our faulty memories and tired understanding. It's also about the borderlands of politics and reason, and of reality and transcendence, in contested territories.

From The Publisher*‘The clock at Grand Central gave me five minutes, and cutting through the crowd, all those intersecting lives, I found my track, my train, a seat by the window.' Mark Slouka
