Granta 125 – After The War

I wasn’t too sure that Granta counted as a book, its more of a magazine/journal but then I ignored the fact that it isn’t a proper book. It has an ISBN anyway so is mostly a book.

But what this whole book brings home is the echoing of wars through years and generations afterwards. How long it takes for people to heal when whole countries have been damaged so badly by wars, and how hard it is to find justice. And then how useless and too little too late that justice is. The non-fiction pieces in particular are heartbreaking and made me wonder how on earth people can do this to each other, even as it has been done throughout history.
