Synopsis

Hari Kunzru travels to Chernobyl, Detroit, and Japan to investigate the phenomenon of disaster tourism. Policeman-turned-detective-turned-writer A Yi describes life as a provincial gumshoe in China. Physician Siddhartha Mukherjee visits a government hospital in New Delhi, where he meets Madha Sengupta, at the end of his life and on the frontiers of medicine. Robert Macfarlane explores the limestone world beneath the Peak District. And Haruki Murakami revisits his walk to Kobe in the aftermath of the 1995 earthquake.

In this issue - which includes poems by Charles Simic and Ellen Bryant Voigt, a story by Miroslav Penkov, and non-fiction by David Searcy, Teju Cole, and Hector Abad - Granta presents a panoramic view of our shared landscape and investigates our motivations for exploring it. "One's destination is never a place," Henry Miller wrote, "but a new way of seeing things."

Customer Reviews

An excellent, beautifully compiled and brilliantly curated selection of travel writing from a very varied group of authors. Such a nice book to keep going back to when you're longing for other lands or, simply, for compelling writing about the many aspects of travelling and opening up one's mind.
