In late 1980, Fay Weldon and Bill Buford, then editor of this magazine, discussed Granta 1, new American writing and gender politics. (Read a larger version of the letter here.)
The story about ‘women in a black hairdressers’ was written by J. K. Klaven and eventually appeared in Granta 3: ‘The End of the English Novel’.
Fay Weldon is the author of over twenty novels and five collections of short stories. She lives in London.
