One day in September, a decade ago, all eyes were turned in the same direction.
Ten years later, where are we looking? How do we see things differently? From Ground Zero to Kampala to London to Mumbai, we still feel the impact. The way we interact, the way we travel, our relationship to media and technology - all have been irrevocably changed. Granta 116 will examine the consequences of the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, from a global perspective. Showcasing some of the most insightful essayists, fiction writers, poets and visual artists working today, Ten Years Later will explore the complexity of our perceptions of 9/11. The world changed - but how?
John Freeman has been editor of Granta since 2009. He is the author of The Tyranny of E-mail and former president of the National Book Critics circle.
