Tetra Pak heiress eyes Granta literary windfall

granta.jpgGranta, the most influential English-language literary magazine, owned by Sigrid Rausing, heiress to plastic packaging giant Tetra Pak, will open an online archive this week of more than 30 years of new writing, according to an article today in guardian.co.uk.

 

The quarterly journal, more like a slim paperback book than a magazine, featured writing in the 1980s from up and coming writers including Salman Rushdie and Ian McEwan.

 

The Blog’s collection of early Grantas has unfortunately been sitting in a bookcase in the conservatory so the spines are pretty bleached and the books are not worth as much as they should be. I think I’ll take a couple on my next long journey to remind myself I used to be an early adopter.
