The Memphis Flyer features the exhibition We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Terri Phillips, currently at the University of Memphis' ArtLab.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle is the title of a psychological thriller written in the 1960s by the novelist Shirley Jackson, who is most famous for her short story "The Lottery." The novel's teenage female protagonist, Merricat, lives with her troubled, half-dissolved family in a disintegrating mansion. It is a familiar literary trope, more common in the 19th century than the 20th: females living isolated lives in strange houses that echo their psychological struggles. Most people who sat through high school English can remember Charles Dickens' Miss Havisham or the troubled wife in the attic in Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre. (Eileen Townsend)
Comicus (Italy) interviews graphic novel author Ramón Pérez who speaks about his future plans:
La classica domanda di chiusura: progetti futuri? Su cosa stai lavorando?
Al momento, come stavo dicendo a qualcuno l'altro giorno, non penso più in settimane e anni, sto cercando di pensare in anni perché la tabella di marcia sta diventando molto fitta. Ho un sacco di cose, sto solo cercando l'ordine in cui farle. Lavorerò ancora con Archaia su un altro graphic novel con la sceneggiatrice Aline Brosh McKenna, che ha scritto Il diavolo veste Prada. Stiamo lavorando a una reinterpretazione moderna di Jane Eyre. Sembra forte, in pratica farò quello e un graphic novel un po' sul genere romanticismo nero, spero di essere il disegnatore giusto per il compito. (Dario Drago Forti) (Translation)
Still in Italy, TargatoCN features Emily Brontë.

The Telegraph and Argus has an article on a local pub landlord who has become a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. Meaning that he
is willing to conduct services anywhere, from his own watering hole to the wild Bronte moors. He has trained with the Fellow-ship to carry out ceremonies in whatever form, location and costume his clients want.
He said: “I can hold a ceremony in whatever style people want, such as a football or pagan theme.
“I think the Great Northern is the first pub in West Yorkshire where you can do the whole package, but we can also do it outdoors, from the Brontë Waterfall to Ilkley Moor.” (David Knights)
