Ian Jack's list

At The Week this week, Ian Jack, editor of Granta, named "The List."

One of his titles:
The Collected Short Stories by Katherine Mansfield

These are a belated discovery for me: I read them for the first time only a year or two ago. Together with Chekhov’s I would put them among the finest stories ever written. As fresh and modern-seeming, especially about women, as when they were first published, around the time of the First World War.
Read about the entire list.
