Granta 132: Possession

Summer 2015

In this issue, Oliver Bullough travels to Ukraine and Crimea in the wake of revolution; Kerry Howley writes about cage fighting and giving birth; Molly Brodak remembers her father, a compulsive gambler and failed bank robber; and Bella Pollen describes being visited – repeatedly – by an incubus. Here are fifteen takes on the human drive to possess – a person, a home, a territory – and the many ways we become possessed – by ideas, by desires, by spirits.
