From Borges to García Márquez, Vargas Llosa, Marías or Bolaño , the Spanish language has given us some of the 20th century’s most beloved writers. But as the reach of Spanish culture extends far beyond Spain and Latin America, and the US tilts towards a majority Hispanic population, the time is right to ask who and what is next in Spanish-language fiction? In this, the first translated issue of Granta’s Best of Young Novelists, a distinguished panel of six judges – Edgardo Cozarinsky, Isabel Hilton, Francisco Goldman, Mercedes Monmany, and Granta en Español's publishers, Valerie Miles and Aurelio Major – looks to new writing across the Spanish-speaking world and asks, ‘Who are the most promising novelists telling the stories from the old and new worlds today?’ Granta 113, published simultaneously in Spain as Los mejores narradores jovenes en español, will showcase the work of 22 promising new writers. Granta’s previous 'Best of Young Novelists' issues have been startlingly accurate crystal balls – first calling attention to the work of writers from Salman Rushdie to Jonathan Franzen to Zadie Smith. Here, for the first time in translation, we will again attempt to predict the stars of the future.
