A fiction special, introducing two new authors. Gary Shteyngart is not yet 30. His story, "Several Anecdotes About My Wife", is a funny and scurrilous account of a young Russian immigrant's disastrous marriage to a native New Yorker.

Jon McGregor works as washer-up in a Nottingham restaurant.

His story "Jonas" is a lyrical and disturbing account of a mysterious death in the Anglian fens.

This edition also includes new short stories by Rachel Cusk, Edmund White and Jonathan Ley.

Other features include: Arthur Miller remembers his life at the Chelsea Hotel, with Brendan Behan and Dylan Thomas; Rory Stewart among the dervishes in Pakistan; Aleksander Hemon's return to Sarajevo; and a photographic essay by Deirdra O'Callaghan on the lost souls of Camden Town.
