In 1996, Granta's first Best of Young American Novelists issue included Jeffrey Eugenides, Jonathan Franzen and Lorrie Moore. Who will match them in the new generation? This special issue features original work by the twenty-one writers under thirty-five who Granta’s judges (including novelists Edmund White and A.M. Holmes) have selected as the most interesting new young voices in American fiction.

A plethora of well-known writers contributed short stories: Jonathan Safran Foer, Nell Freudenberger, ZZ Packer, Nicole Krauss, Karen Russell, Dara Horn, and others. Unfortunately, most of the stories were just not to my taste. They seemes to be trying a bit too hard to be avant garde, kinky, "new," which meant that the main characters just didn't engage me.
