Granta #7: Service
I Granta #7 om service gör nya och etablerade författare en översyn av ett ord som väcker känslor och skapar debatt. Lars Berge ringer till bredbandssupporten och granskar servicesamhället, debutanten Julia Stenroth skildrar det monotona arbetet på en svinfarm och Dimitris Alevras berättar om en nybliven nattklubbschef omgiven av spritfläckar och minnen. Ida Therén ritar upp June Mansfield Millers liv och Susanna Alakoski beskriver sjukvårdsupplysningens tjänster. Åke Smedberg skriver om komplexa relationer i en trött småstad och så undersöker Elin Cullhed maktbalansen i ett familjehem. Ur internationella Granta kommer bland annat en berättelse om ett butiksbiträde som gör allt för sin kund, en novell om en dubbelarbetande mamma och en historia om dödshjälp. Svenska Granta är del av ett internationellt nätverk med engelskspråkiga Granta som nav. Tidskriften grundades av studenter i Cambridge i slutet av 1800-talet. År 1979 fick den sin nuvarande form som en arena för nyskriven skönlitteratur och litterära reportage. I dag finns Grantaredaktioner i ett tiotal länder världen över, från Kina till Brasilien. www.albertbonniersforlag.se/granta Twitter/Instagram: GrantaSweden

El Emperador de Todos Los Males / The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
En 2010, siete millones de personas murieron de c�ncer en todo el mundo. Con esta fr�a estad�stica Siddhartha Mukherjee, m�dico e investigador oncol�gico, arranca su amplia y absorbente �biograf�a� de una de las enfermedades m�s extendidas de nuestro tiempo. El emperador de todos los males es una cr�nica completa del c�ncer desde sus or�genes hasta los modernos tratamientos (quimioterapia de diversos tipos, radioterapia y cirug�a, adem�s de la prevenci�n) que han surgido gracias a un siglo de investigaci�n, ensayos y peque�os avances trascendentales en muchos lugares distintos. Este libro es un repaso a la ciencia del c�ncer y a la historia de los tratamientos que le han hecho frente, pero tambi�n es una reflexi�n sobre la enfermedad, la �tica m�dica y las complejas y entrelazadas vidas de los onc�logos y sus pacientes. La empat�a que muestra Mukherjee hacia los enfermos de c�ncer y sus familias, as� como hacia los m�dicos que muy a menudo tan pocas esperanzas les pueden ofrecer, hacen de este libro una historia llena de humanidad de una enfermedad compleja e inasible. Rese�as: �Esta obra deber�a valer a Mukherjee un merecido lugar en el pante�n de los grandes divulgadores de nuestra era, junto a Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould y Stephen Hawking.� The Boston Globe �Una magistral historia de la investigaci�n sobre el c�ncer.� Publishers Weekly ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and now a documentary from Ken Burns on PBS, The Emperor of All Maladies is a magnificent, profoundly humane "biography" of cancer--from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence. Physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with--and perished from--for more than five thousand years. The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance, but also of hubris, paternalism, and misperception. Mukherjee recounts centuries of discoveries, setbacks, victories, and deaths, told through the eyes of his predecessors and peers, training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary that, just three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out "war against cancer." The book reads like a literary thriller with cancer as the protagonist. From the Persian Queen Atossa, whose Greek slave may have cut off her diseased breast, to the nineteenth-century recipients of primitive radiation and chemotherapy to Mukherjee's own leukemia patient, Carla, The Emperor of All Maladies is about the people who have soldiered through fiercely demanding regimens in order to survive--and to increase our understanding of this iconic disease. Riveting, urgent, and surprising, The Emperor of All Maladies provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of cancer treatments. It is an illuminating book that provides hope and clarity to those seeking to demystify cancer.
