Granta 113: The Best of Young Spanish-Language Novelists

From Borges to Bolaño, the Spanish language has given us some of the most beloved writers of the 20th and 21st centuries. But as the reach of Spanish-language culture extends far beyond Spain and Latin America, and as the US tilts towards a majority Hispanic population, it is time to ask who is next in this exciting tradition. Chosen by a distinguished panel of six judges, Granta and Granta en español present twenty-two literary stars of the future. ■
