Looking for new titles to add to your digital collection? British literary magazine Granta recently announced their choice for the 20 most promising British writers under the age of 40. This honor occurs once every decade and showcases a variety of young and culturally diverse authors.  Seven judges spent a year selecting the chosen novelists. One of the judges told UK newspaper The Telegraph: “We were trying to choose people who were at least capable of writing the best work of their generation – whatever they come up with next, I cannot wait to read it.”
