The New York Times describes the new poetry studio of John Barr in the woods:
Inspiration sometimes comes to the poet John Barr while he gazes at boulders beneath his new cantilevered writing studio here. Or as he strolls along its entry passageway lined in oak shelves, with 1,500 volumes of other people’s poetry organized alphabetically from Brontë to Yeats. (Eve M. Kahn)
The Hans India reviews Dr Farah Naqvi's novel The Light In Blackout:
With its intriguing quirk, destiny can dispose of the design of man and smother all hopes. Constantly constant fear begins to lurk over the mindscape of Alizah, and a sense of alienation overwhelms her. The bubbly girl now turns introvert and timid like some of the vulnerable characters of Dickens, Brontë sisters and Hardy. (Prof Shiv Sethi)

Centropagina (Italy) talks about an event that took place yesterday, November 23 in Fabriano, Italy:
Nel pomeriggio, alle 17:30, Michela Murgia e Chiara Tagliaferri presentano Morgana (Mondadori), il loro libro di successo che racconta le storie di dieci donne controcorrente, strane e pericolose. Moana Pozzi, Santa Caterina, Grace Jones, le sorelle Brontë, Moira Orfei, Tonya Harding, Marina Abramovic, Shirley Temple, Vivienne Westwood, Zaha Hadid. Morgana non è un catalogo di donne esemplari; al contrario, sono streghe per le donne stesse, irriducibili anche agli schemi della donna emancipata e femminista che oggi, in piena affermazione del pink power, nessuno ha in fondo più timore a raccontare. (Claudio Curti) (Translation)
