Granta Book of Reportage by Ian Jack
Book DescriptionSince its relaunch in 1979, "Granta" magazine has championed the art and craft of reportage - journalism marked by vivid description, a novelist's eye to form and eyewitness reporting that reveals hidden truths about people and events that have shaped the world we know. This updated edition of "The Granta Book of Reportage" collects a dozen of the finest and most lasting pieces Granta has published. Featuring distinguished writers and reporters: John Simpson, James Fenton, Martha Gellhorn, Germaine Greer, Ryszard Kapuscinski, John le Carre, as well as new talents Elana Lappin, Suketu Mehta and Wendell Steavenson, the book covers some of the signal events of our time: the fall of Saigon, the end of apartheid in South Africa, the massacre in Tiananmen Square, and the aftermath of the American invasion of Iraq.
