For the first time in ten years, Granta has revealed its list of the Best of Young British Novelists. Below, we’ve linked to free samples of all 20 novelists.

The winners were chosen from among 150 novelists by a panel of judges: John Freeman, Ellah Allfrey, Romesh Gunesekera, Stuart Kelly, A.L. Kennedy, Sigrid Rausing and Gaby Wood. Here’s more from the release:

At a celebration to be held at the British Council, on the evening of 15 April 2013, Granta will announce its once-in-a-decade selection of the twenty best British novelists aged under forty. Granta’s first generation-defining list of writers was published in 1983 and set the bar for the following decades.

Ellah Allfrey Named Deputy Editor at Granta

1247759281848.jpgThe literary journal Granta has appointed Ellah Allfrey as deputy editor. Earlier this year, editor Alex Clark stepped down, making John Freeman the journal’s acting editor.

Allfrey is a publishing veteran with five years at Penguin Press and six years at Random House. Most recently, she served as senior editor at Jonathan Cape. Over the course of her career, she has edited Carmen Callil, Bettany Hughes and Julian Barnes. In addition she helmed Cape’s growing list of young African writers. Last week, GalleyCat covered the release party for Granta 107.

Allfrey had this statement: “This is a particularly exciting time to be joining Granta. While I am sorry to be leaving Cape, it’s an irresistible opportunity to work on a magazine that has published many of my favourite writers. I am delighted at the prospect of working with John and the team at Granta–finding the very best of new writing and building on the magazine’s reputation as one at the heart of cultural life.”
