British Library

The British Library announced earlier this week its acquisition of the archive of the UK magazine, Granta. The much-lauded literary journal is marking the 40th anniversary of its relaunch this year.  

Comprised of about three hundred boxes of material, the Granta archive features correspondence from many significant contemporary authors, including Margaret Atwood, Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Zadie Smith. Deeper in the collection are letters from Raymond Carver, Susan Sontag, and Martha Gellhorn.
