Since Granta's inaugural list of the Best of Young British Novelists in 1983 - featuring Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Martin Amis and Julian Barnes - the Best of Young issues have been some of the magazine's most influential. In 2010, Granta looked beyond the English-speaking world with Best of Young Spanish-Language Novelists. Now, with its first-ever issue fully translated from Portuguese in partnership with Granta em Português, the magazine continues its work of celebrating emerging talent from around the world.

Submissions by young and promising authors from across Brazil have been read and discussed by a judging panel comprised of the country's foremost literary figures - including Manuel da Costa Pinto, coordinator of the Paraty Literary Festival, Cristovão Tezza is one of the most important writers in the country, and Benjamin Moser, author of a biography on Clarice Lispector. Contributors include Cristhiano Aguiar, Javier Arancibia Contreras, Vanessa Barbara, Carol Bensimon, Miguel Del Castillo, J.P. Cuenca, Laura Erber, Emilio Fraia, Julían Fuks , Daniel Galera, Luisa Geisler, Vinicius Jatobá, Michel Laub, Ricardo Lísias, Chico Mattoso, Antonio Prata, Carola Saavedra, Tatiana Salem Levy, Leandro Sarmatz, and Antônio Xerxenesky.

John Freeman's criticism has appeared in more than two hundred newspapers around the world, including the Guardian, the Independent, The Times and the Wall Street Journal. His first book, The Tyranny of E-Mail, is published by Scribner in the US and Text in Australia.

Granta 121 shows a young generation emerging with a hi-tech, interconnected world and it neither chooses nor needs to put Brazil at its centre ... All the writing here is similarly knowing, sassy, exploratory. It is frontier crossing, critical of national verities, emotionally frank, sometimes cruel, often funny. Granta has performed an exemplary act of translation. - International Briefing
