Granta 80 : The Group Paperback / softback
by Ian Jack
Part of the Granta: The Magazine of New Writing series
Paperback / softback
Everybody has been a reluctant or willing member of one: the family, the school, the football side, the quiz team, the once-faithful friends who met in a bar every Friday at five.
Group photographs are their souvenir - frozen moments of a previous way of living, and of liking or disliking the people who shared it.
In this issue of Granta magazine, writers take out their group photographs and evoke the sometimes uncomfortable times, places and people they used to know.
It also includes new fiction and reportage from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
