#2 The Brontës
Perhaps the most famous literary family the country has produced, the Brontës were born in Thornton and spent most of their lives in Haworth. Their life and work are celebrated in Haworth’s Brontë Parsonage Museum, which is a short walk away from the unspoilt area of south Pennine hills that inspired works including Wuthering Heights.
EasternEye interviews writer Saz Vora:
What can we expect next from you?
A standalone novel inspired by Jane Eyre, set in the south of France and England. It is a story of Hema Pattni, an orphan who is both intrigued and scared of meeting Rahul Raichura, the man who has employed her to look after his four-year-old charge. A story of a Gujarati family who holds a secret. (Mita Mistry)
Spectator Australia reviews Vanessa Springora's memoir Consent about her abuse as a young girl by the paedophile writer Gabriel Matzneff.

A columnist from The Journal (Ireland) mentions her childhood reads.
I read Around the World in 80 Days and War of the Worlds and Jane Eyre. I had nobody to guide me, no kindly librarian to curate what I read and guide me towards what I should be reading. Thank god for that. (Aoife Martin)
