Great opportunity for those interested in Brazilian literature: Granta, the British quarterly magazine that built a reputation focusing on new writers, dedicates its latest edition to the country’s young talents.  The edition is part of a series that previously helped launch the careers of Jonathan Franzen, Salman Rushdie, A.L. Kennedy and Zadie Smith.

The magazine introduces to the wider, English-literate public Cristhiano Aguiar, Javier Arancibia Contreras, Vanessa Barbara, Carol Bensimon, Miguel Del Castillo, J.P. Cuenca, Laura Erber, Emilio Fraia, Julían Fuks, Daniel Galera, Luisa Geisler, Ricardo Lísias, Chico Mattoso, Antonio Prata, Tatiana Salem Levy, Leandro Sarmatz, Vinicius Jatobá , Michel Laub, Antônio Xerxenesky and Carola Saavedra. All of them born after 1973.

Big thanks to Eloísa Aquino, from The Good Blood blog, for the great tip.
