Granta Picks the Best Young Brazilian Novelists

Cristhiano Aguiar, Javier Arancibia Contreras, Carol Bensimon and Miguel del Castillo are among Granta and Granta em português‘ new list of the Best of Young Brazilian Novelists. A panel of seven judges chose 20 authors to be featured on the literary magazine’s list.

Granta editor John Freeman explained in the release: “We buy Brazil’s clothes, we admire its football, we dance to its beats, but the dream-life of the nation – something contemporary fiction creates in a unique and vital way – remains mostly invisible to us, simply because of a lack of translation. I’m hoping this issue can change that a little, and introduce writers who will be with us for decades.”

Work by the authors will be featured in this month’s Portuguese version of the magazine, and in the November issue of the English-language edition of the publication. The issue will also be translated in Granta’s Chinese edition and for Granta en español.
