Loved Ones: Introduction

Ian Jack

One of the world's unfair divisions is that between the writer and the written-about, and this is nowhere more true than in the literary form called the memoir.

Ian Jack

He is the editor of The Granta Book of Reportage and The Granta Book of India, and the author of a collection of journalism, The Country Formerly Known as Great Britain.
