In 1985, Granta published James Fenton’s extraordinary account of the fall of Saigon. Twenty years after the first tank entered the city, Philip Gourevitch, Tran Vu, Paul Eggers, and Bao Ninh examine the aftermath of that terrible war. Also: work from some of our finest contributors – Redmond O’Hanlon, Norman Lewis, Germaine Greer, Timothy Garton Ash, Julian Barnes, and more.

'Our relationship, in fact, hasn't seemed to need more attention to theme or direction but has proceeded or at least persisted on autopilot, like a small plane flying out over a peaceful ocean with no one exactly in command.'
