Guardian Summer Fiction

The Guardian has, hands down, the best literary coverage in the world. They've just uncorked their Summer Fiction Special, with new fiction from the esteemed likes of Colm Tóibín, William Trevor, Haruki Murakami, James Meek (whose The People's Act of Love is near the top of my pile), Annie Proulx, Richard Ford, Yann Martel, Julian Barnes, Carol Shields, Ali Smith and many others.

All of which makes me wistfully dream that maybe, someday, what is widely considered America's bastion of literary journalism will once again believe that fiction does indeed matter.
