Granta 124: Travel: Travel
By

Rating
Hari Kunzru travels to Chernobyl, Detroit, and Japan to investigate the phenomenon of "disaster tourism." Dinaw Mengustu gets at the heart of a resort town in western Africa. Pola Oloixarac resurrects the Viennese royals as they move their capital to Brazil. Nicole Krauss recounts finding her footing in Berlin. Former policeman-turned-detective-turned writer, A Yi, describes life as a provincial gumshoe in China. And acclaimed short story writer Beatriz Bracher tells the tale of an anthropologist's daughter trying to piece together her mother's fatal trip into the Amazon.
In this diverse collection of fiction, reportage, memoir, photography, and poetry - including new work by Charles Simic - Granta presents a panoramic view of our shared landscape and investigates our motivations to explore it. "One's destination is never a place," Henry Miller wrote, "but a new way of seeing things."
