In The Los Angeles Review of Books Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀ interviews Oyinkan Braithwaite.
Korede is complicit in the murders without being a perpetrator. Why did you choose to write My Sister, the Serial Killer from her perspective? I quickly realized that in order to do justice to my vision of Ayoola, the story could not be from her point of view. I recalled that Wuthering Heights was a story that was told from the perspective of characters who were not necessarily integral to the tale itself, and this method appealed to me.
LiveMint interviews writer Ruskin Bond, who also mentions Wuthering Heights.
Finally, is it easy to adapt short stories for the screen? What have your challenges been like? Well, I don’t have that challenge because I write them just the way I enjoy writing them. I guess the adaptation is handled by the director and the screenwriter. Looking back at famous films on ghost stories or films where there was a supernatural or macabre element, I feel it can come off quite well, like Wuthering Heights or Rebecca. But I think it is easier for a ghost story to be more effective when they are short stories. (Bibek Bhattacharya)
But not everyone knows what they're talking about when they mention the novel. Case in point: a so-called lifestyle blogger on Female First.
5) Poetry on the beach
I know this sounds a bit cliché but if you enjoy literature, poetry and wild romance, then embrace your inner Heathcliff and Cathy. Take a book of poetry, a flask of something mulled, a blanket and your loved one for warmth. Read each other poems overlooking the sea. (Leah Larwood)
The Independent reviews Diane Setterfield's new novel, Once Upon a River, and describes her debut novel, The Thirteenth Tale as a
 take on the classic romantic mystery novel, infused with the spirit of Jane Eyre, Rebecca and The Woman in White. (Clémence Michallon)
The Scotsman recommends taking a walk through Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Queen Victoria thought the view ‘quite enchanting’, while Charlotte Brontë considered London prose but Edinburgh poetry, describing it as ‘mine own romantic town’. (Euan MacInnes)
The Book Family Rogerson take a walk along the Jane Eyre trail.
