Joanna Mires

Receptionist and Office Assistant, Granta Publications

It’s my job to be as helpful as possible and to make sure that everyone has what they need. I find it really satisfying to be surrounded by colleagues who are invested in their work and I really enjoy being part of the team. Being at Granta allows me the time to be creative outside of work while working in an interesting and vibrant environment.

My favourite book in translation: In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki (translated by Thomas J. Harper and Edward G. Seidensticker). A short but interesting book exploring beauty in the everyday.

My most dog-eared copy of Granta magazine: Granta 126: Do You Remember. This was gifted to me by a good friend and was my first copy of the magazine.
