Ms magazine features the Reclaim Her Name collection.
Beyond the women writers represented in the collection, other best-selling authors with male monikers include Louisa May Alcott, the Brontë sisters, Erika Leonard (E.L. James) and Joane [sic] (J.K.) Rowling. (Sarah Montgomery)
Los Angeles Times reviews Elena Ferrante’s La vita bugiarda degli adulti (The Lying Life of Adults).
What exactly is an adult? Where is the line that divides our formative selves from our formed selves? The bildungsroman, the coming-of-age novel, is obsessed with this process. The great ones — “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,” “Jane Eyre,”and “Mansfield Park” — slip over the line smoothly; we don’t feel the hitch. But then they double back as their characters struggle to pull on a variation of their younger selves, like a dress that fit last summer but has now crept up, exposing unseemly parts. The discomfort is the point. (Hillary Kelly)
El comercio (Spain) interviews writer María Oruña.
Imagínese que tuviera la oportunidad de convocar al fantasma de un escritor para hacerle una única pregunta. ¿A quién llamaría y qué le preguntaría?
A Charlotte Brontë y le preguntaría qué 'Jane Eyre' escribiría hoy. (Verónica García-Peña) (Translation)
Rolling Stone reports that,
Alanis Morissette has launched her Alanis Radio show on Apple Music Hits and for the inaugural episode, she shared a playlist and thoughts on the artists and the music that inspire her, including Tori Amos and Kate Bush. [...]
Another early influence on Morissette was Kate Bush and she cited the UK artist’s classic “Wuthering Heights.” “Kate Bush was so gorgeous to me. Her voice was so beautiful to the point where I really believed that if I could sing along with her and hit the same notes as her, that I had a tiny chance to be able to be a legit singer at some point,” she said. (Althea Legaspi)
TES has an article by a teacher who's 'rekindling an old relationship' with her classroom after several months of virtual teaching.
But our relationship has lasted beyond the rocky times. It’s weathered the disaster of a cascade of water when the roof leaked, and the westerly gales that make you shiver and your window panes rattle fit for the film set of Wuthering Heights. (Yvonne Williams)
