Bonkers People

Yorkshire Post interviews the actress and playwright Deborah McAndrew:

One of her particular icons is Anne Brontë. “She has a reputation as churchy and obedient, but I don’t find that in her writing – it’s political and feisty. When you say you’re a Brontë fan, some people – men, mostly – say the books are full of bonkers people, written by women who knew nothing of life. I find that view extraordinary. I felt that by comparison with the great writers I had nothing important to say and wasn’t clever enough." (Sheena Hastings)
You can continue reading the interview to discover how she finally changed her mind.

Icakuriren (Sweden) talks about the writer Peter Robinson:
Yorkshire, i norra England, har i alla tider varit ett grevskap som fått utgöra litterär bakgrundsmiljö i alla möjliga sammanhang - från systrarna Brontë, via James Herriot och framåt och många är de författare som har sina rötter - eller som har levt en stor del av sina liv - här. ( Mystiska Ms M) (Translation)
Bookish Temptations interviews another writer, Katy Evans:
Favorite book and character not your own?
Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. So tortured, so dark, love him
The Brontë Parsonage Facebook rescues from the Treasure Trove the 1833 watercolour ‘Gos Hawk’ by Branwell Brontë.
