In 1983, Granta made a splash by putting out an edition of writing from what it thought were the 20 best British novelists under the age of 40. It made headlines because the majority of these writers were indeed immensely talented, influential and successful. Ten years on in 1993, Granta attempted it again and the result is this volume.
Here are 20 works largely taken from whatever book the author was about to publish at the time. Overall the reading experience is unsatisfying as consuming these excerpts out of the context of the novel they belong to leaves one feeling they've missed something. The most successful pieces are the short stories and the excerpts that are self-contained, such as Caryl Phillips' moving slavery story, "West," and Helen Simpson's beautiful, harrowing story, "Heavy Weather," about adapting to mothering a jealous toddler and a newborn.
Granta's editors weren't as successful in catching fire in 1993. I'd say less than half of these authors turned out to be members of Britain's "Best," and that includes two who were repeated here from the earlier list because they were still under 40. Still, it's a large collection of good to terrific writing and some prove to be very good teasers for the full novel and other work from the authors.

Dreary and dull, nearly the entire issue is devoted to Germany's problems post unification. I think at the time, late 1992, the U.K. was watching with horror as Germany showed signs of rising nationalism and violence to foreigners, and appeared to be welcoming a neo-Nazi movement.
The few articles not focused on Germany--first-hand accounts of the Gulf War bombing of Baghdad and the wars in Croatia and Bosnia--are much more enlightening. Amazing the horrors humans inflict on each other.
