Stylist and Oxfam adviser Bay Garnett shares some of her recent favourites in Financial Times:
The best book I’ve read recently is Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I didn’t even know it existed until a friend recommended it, knowing that Jane Eyre is my favourite novel. It was a total treat to go back into that gothic world that the sisters created. (Maria Fitzpatrick)
Multiversity Comics reviews Glass Town by Isabel Greenberg.
There is an extremely physical feeling to Isabelle [sic] Greenburg’s [sic] art in “Glass Town: The Imaginary World of the Brontës.” Every line, every color feels like it was done with traditional artistic implements. This physicality, the scratchiness of each line drawn, gives “Glass Town” a great sense of setting. Even the lettering on the book contributes to this feeling. The font used is almost script like, giving the words the feeling that they could have been handwritten by the actual Brontës. The art makes the book feel like it could have come from the same, early 19th century that it is set in. (Reed Hinckley-Barnes)
The National Interest shares the memories of several 'eyewitnesses' about the start of World War II.
... young Lieutenant Peter Parton of the Royal Artillery was watching a late showing of Wuthering Heights at the cinema in the little Somerset port of Watchet. Halfway through the projection of the newly released film starring Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon, an ominous message was suddenly flashed on the screen: “All officers and soldiers return to your barracks immediately.” 
Bookwig Reviews posts about Wuthering Heights. An alert for today, June 4 on Radiocittà Fujiko (Italy), the programme Un tocco di classico is all about Bernard Herrmann's score for Jane Eyre 1944.
