Granta 21: The Storyteller

Bruce Chatwin in the outback, Ryszard Kapuscinski carrying a coffin through the Polish ‘bush’, and John Berger defining the story-teller: detached, skeptical, and intensely compassionate. With stories from Richard Ford, Isabel Allende, Raymond Carver, and Oliver Sacks, and Primo Levi on weightlessness – one of the last pieces he wrote before his suicide.
