My treat for the week has been reading Granta: "Mothers" (issue 88). A lot of writing out there is clever or thought provoking or even "well-written." Every story in this issue was absolutely masterful, far and above the average. The issue also includes a story from Paul Theroux, who's been a long-time favorite of mine. Granta is new to me (apparently it started as Cambridge U's student rag before evolving into a magazine for new writing). I want more and am rabidly searching for back issues through inter-library loan and ebay.

I used to read this from time to time. Image is another exceptional literary mag, too. Where did you find the back issue?
