John Freeman is a literary bowerbird; he has an eye for treasure. It's a skill the New York-based writer and critic sharpened as editor of Granta magazine and is now showcasing with thoughtful confidence in Freeman's, a themed literary anthology with a compellingly global purview... He certainly excels at the art of collection, particularly when he looks beyond the big names. But curating an anthology is more than simple acquisition. You need to listen for rhythms and encourage the pieces to talk to one another, to tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. Freeman's succeeds because it does these things unobtrusively; it brings together strangers, and builds a family.
