Granta is always great. this edition is great writing about nature. I read a piece on the "wilding" of the Columbia River Valley by Jonathan Raban, Short essays by Jim Holt on global warming, Seamus Heaney writes about a piece of Birch he found in New Hampshire that reminds him of a woman's torso. Philip Marsden writes about J.T. Blight who was kinda crazy but assiduously studied and wrote about one of my favorite places in the world, Cornwall. There's lots more and who knows when I'll get to it. Well, I haven't read everything in this Granta, but I found myself thanking Miss Doherty and Mrs. Littlefield for teaching me how to read after I completed Lydia Peele's Phantom Pain. It is an amazing story that I think about nearly everyday now since I read it a week and a half ago.
