Granta 125: After the War - with Lindsey Hilsum and Frances Harrison

How long is the shadow of a battle, an explosion, a revolution? What stories arise in the wake of devastation? To mark the publication of Granta 125: After the War, two of Britain’s foremost journalists and foreign correspondents discuss the craft, conditions and issues surrounding writing about post-conflict situations.


How long is the shadow of a battle, an explosion, a revolution? What stories arise in the wake of devastation? The latest issue of Granta magazine explores the aftermath and legacy of conflict in fiction, poetry, reportage and memoir. To mark the publication of Granta 125: After the War, two of Britain’s foremost journalists and foreign correspondents discuss the craft, conditions and issues surrounding writing about post-conflict situations.
Chaired by Sigrid Rausing, the Publisher of Granta magazine and Granta Books.
