Granta 100

Wordsbody, why not talk about some of the contents of the William Boyd guest edited 100th issue of Granta?
Well, because there are so many pieces by so many stellar writers in the issue, one doesn't know where to begin. The reader will just have to dip in to find them out, including this rather interesting thing called "My Question for Myself", wherein a writer asks a question he/she wishes a journalist had asked, then provides the answer. Richard Ford's is one of the more interestingly succinct ones. 'Richard Ford, do you know what's important to you?' / 'No, but I can make it up'. Which of course is what writers do.
