Granta's editors have, for the magazine's 119th edition, selected "Britain" as a theme. The Paul Smith-designed cover shows a chipped and cracked tea cup, its broken-off handle lying beside it. The implied idea – the break-down of respectability – is nicely in keeping with the collection's overall tone. The pieces here tend to emphasise the rough, squalid and often nihilistic side of British life. It's as if the editors have ventured forth from the usual territory and uncovered a strain of wildness – even madness – around the fringes. Country houses, public schools and metropolitan dinner parties – those staples of contemporary fiction – are conspicuously absent.
