In 1983, Granta devoted an entire issue to new fiction by 20 of the ‘Best of Young British Novelists,’ and did so again 10 years later. From Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie, Kazuo Ishiguro, to Zadie Smith, these lists have offered a revealing snapshot of a generation of writers about to come into their own. Join two of the novelists from the 2013 list – Xiaolu Guo and Nadifa Mohamed – for readings and discussion with Dr Katy Shaw, Director of Centre, C21: Centre for Twenty First Century Writings. In partnership with the British Council.
