From Nobel laureates to debut novelists, international translations to investigative journalism, each themed issue of Granta turns the attention of the world’s best writers on to one aspect of the way we live now.
The latest issue is themed ‘Generations.’ At the risk of becoming a pop sociologist, editor Thomas Meaney breaks down the contemporary classifications of western generations – like the Boomers, Millennials, and Zoomers we've all heard so much about – while also filling out the historical and literary implications of generational grouping. As he writes:
‘Generations: is any sociological concept at once so derided and so indispensable? We move through the years alongside our age cohort. We are exposed to the same cataclysms, the same economic booms or busts, the same technological medical developments, however unequal the access or experience...only by trying to understand the commitments and follies of the generations above and below can you discover those of your own. Generations: you shall know them by their passions.’
