Since its relaunch in 1979, Granta magazine has championed the art and craft of reportage - journalism marked by vivid description, a novelist's eye to form and eyewitness reporting that reveals hidden truths about people and events that have shaped the world we know. This new edition of The Granta Book of Reportage collects a dozen of the finest and most lasting pieces Granta has published. Featuring distinguished writers and reporters - John Simpson, James Fenton, Martha Gellhorn, Germaine Greer, Ryszard Kapuscinski, John le Carre, as well as new talents Elana Lappin, Suketu Mehta and Wendell Steavenson - the book covers some of the signal events of our time: the fall of Saigon, the end of apartheid in South Africa, the massacre in Tiananmen Square and the aftermath of the American invasion of Iraq.
Granta magazine and Granta’s book imprint, Granta Books, are published in both London and New York under the title Granta Publications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Granta continues to put out literary gold This was one of my favourite books that I read for leisure while in university. It first introduced me to the genre of reportage and I have read dozens of books thereafter. I am always skeptical of a collection of essays in a book, but the editing is solid and the subject matter riveting.
