The Huffington Post interviews the crime writer Peter Robinson:
If Inspector Banks were to have a dinner party and invited five guests from any walk of life, living or dead, who would they be? (...) The same question to Peter Robinson, not Inspector Banks. (Mark Rubinstein)I'd have Thomas Hardy along with Emily Brontë to see what kind of conversation they'd have. Then, Jerry Garcia, since I was always a big Deadhead (Laughter); Graham Greene and Louis Armstrong would be invited, too. 
The Irish Times interviews yet another writer, Joseph O'Connor:
I grew up to be a novelist, not a musician (thankfully), but I do believe in the music of words. Shakespeare, Emily Brontë, Scott Fitzgerald, Kingsley Amis, Dickens, Flannery O’Connor, Colm Tóibín, Anne Enright, they all have their music if you listen.
RTÉ on sequels/prequels:
Described as a prequel to Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre, the highly-regarded novel Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys was published in 1966 and remains a kind of cult classic. (Paddy Kehoe)
El País Smoda on life after a relationship break up:
Está la divorciada que inicia una maratón sexual para ponerse al día y quemar los últimos cartuchos, y que ha devorado todas las entregas de 50 Sombras de Grey; el nuevo hombre sensible –ya no procede de Marte, sino de Venus–, que sufre tanto como las protagonistas femeninas de las novelas de las hermanas Brontë[.] (Rita Abundancia) (Translation)
Buka (Croatia) talks about writers' houses:
Kuća je još uvijek bila puna njihovih predmeta i postala je turistička atrakcija. Iako je Vulf bila skeptičan posjetilac, razmišljala je zašto bi bilo korisno i važno posjetiti dom mrtvog pisca. I mislila je da će to biti besmisleno putovanje sve dok nije našla stolicu koja je pripadala Emili Brontë, autorki “Orkanskih visova”. Vulf je zamislila Emili kako sjedi u toj stolici, razmišlja i piše, i nekako je ta spoznaja učinila putovanje vrijednim. Zato smo i mi danas odlučili odvesti vas u razgledavanje kuća poznatih pisaca, od kojih se mnoge mogu posjetiti i razgledati i uživo. (Translation)
Maddalena De Leo posts on the Brontë Parsonage Blog an account of a visit to Penzance; Landscape (in Portuguese) has designed a jean dress inspired by Jane Eyre.
