Description - Granta 90: Country Life by Ian Jack

Country Life: how it is lived, how it has changed, and how the changes are far from over. One of the world's oppositions used to be: country versus town, ale v claret, fields v houses, nature v artifice, starlight v lamplight. But does that division still persist? Does the truly rural still exist? This issue of Granta has dispatches from the greenery. Ranging from English fox-hunters to the rice-planters of the Ganges delta: Tim Adams goes on a fox hunt, Craig Taylor returnsto Akenfield thirty-five years after Ronald Blythe's landmark book about the Suffolk farming town, and Jeff Sharlet finds out what's eatingrural Coloradoans. Plus Margaret Atwood, James Hamilton-Paterson, Barry Lopez, Orhan Pamuk and Tim Winton on the weather, new fiction by Richard Powers, Matthew Reisz on his grandmother's affair with Havelock Ellis, the grandfather of sexual studies and a never-before published interview with Bob Dylan in 1963 by Studs Terkel.
