review 1: Let's cut to the chase: Will Self can be a bit overbearing in his stylistic excess, but the essay he offers here held my interest and made me consider giving his nonfiction a go. Paul Auster is always worth reading and this piece was no exception, really liked his way of describi...

review 1: The autumn 2010 issue of this quarterly periodical from the UK features pieces about Pakistan, most by Pakistanis. The cover artwork is strikingly colorful and arresting. The writings vary from works of fiction to poetry, visual art, history, and current affairs. I was entranc...

review 1: The picture on the front cover is the best thing about this edition of Granta. It was a cynical attempt to woo new subscribers. They still use this edition in adverts, even though it's quite old now. Oh, and there was a recent twist on this idea called The F Word. Disappointingly...

review 1: A great perspective on those who fought or lived through the Afghani and Iraqi wars of the past 10 years. I found the poems very moving and very real. The non-fiction writing is vividly descriptive of a world many of us will never know: the Middle East. Like Americans portrayed t...
