Granta's new issue: WORK

|

Granta editor John Freeman kicks off the New Year by introducing the upcoming issue of the magazine, which will be published on 15th January. The issue is based around the theme of WORK - which he says has become conspicuously absent from literature. Here he talks about pieces by Salman Rushdie, Aminatta Forna, Yiyun Li, Julian Barnes, Colum McCann and others keen to ruminate on one of the most important and unavoidable aspects of our lives.

    Brad Watson's story goes from a dead end family to the fullness of life. Great!

    A few issues back, the editorial note said there would be no more editorial notes and also, if I'm not misrememembering- no more theme issues. Am glad Granta is still doing themes, and am happy to discover the online, Video Intro to this Work issue. Wouldn't it make sense to transcribe what is said in the video, put it in the beginning of the print issue- and reference the Print version readers to the online website (to see the video and online website)?

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this. http://tour-de-singkarak.blogspot.com/ http://blogger-books.blogspot.com/ http://walman-blog.blogspot.com/ http://tour-de-singkarak.blogspot.com/2014/06/daftar-isi.html http://blogger-books.blogspot.com/2014/07/daftar-isi.html http://walman-blog.blogspot.com/2014/07/daftar-isi.html

    The niche of work has become the most important niche today because there are a lot of working opportunities such as internet marketing and affiliate marketing http://johnnreviews.com/power-suggest-pro-review-bonuses/

Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I http://moriyamaproductions.com/ can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking http://millerscandy.com/ about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

    As the Granta issue digs into in more depth, work really is incredibly central to our lives. Whether you're a plumber in Los Angeles like http://fiskitplumbing.com or a plumber in Anaheim like http://ritzplumbing.com/anaheim, we're all working more hours, spending less time with our families, and the overall feeling of community is dwindling. Hundreds of years ago, plumbers weren't just in it for the money, they were there to ensure that town had fresh water, sewer facilities, because families still lived together.

    As the Dalai Lama said... man surprises him because he sacrifices his health to make money. The Granta article about work is very interesting.

    A good English joke can simply be created by just telling an honest story about your life. As the cliché goes, "be yourself". Don't be afraid to make fun of yourself once in a while.

    With so many books and articles coming up to give gateway to make-money-online field and confusing reader even more on the actual way of earning money, Hubwit is a refreshing change. I stumbled upon this site while searching for work-form-home options. I found Hubwit as a transparent site, a social hub which is a conglomerate of Buyers and Sellers who are ready to offer online digital consultancy at decent cost.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
