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.

    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)?

    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.

    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.
