The village is famous for being the birthplace of the literary Brontë family, whose house still stands, as well as its 20-arch viaduct and South Square - former workers cottages that were saved from demolition in the 1980s by a group of volunteers and became a thriving arts and heritage centre.

Hindustan Times interviews the actress Rasika Dugal:
Shruti Nair: What’s the one book you love re-reading?

The Independent (Ireland) reviews Widowland by CJ Carey:
CJ Carey’s Widowland (Quercus, €17.99) is set in London in 1953, where there has been no war with Germany. Britain has instead formed a Grand Alliance with Hitler, and Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson are about to be crowned king and queen.
There is a strict caste system in place here, primarily for women. Rose Ransom works in the Department of Culture, rewriting the novels of George Eliot, the Brontës et al, to better reflect the spirit of this new Alliance. (Anne Cunningham)

Dagens Nyheter (Sweden) talks about the new novel of Siri Pettersen, Järnulven:

Flera gånger undrar jag om hon håller på att byta genre till någon slags hybrid av en flamstrånande Jane Eyre och Fifty-Shades-of-Edward-Cullen (vampyresex). (Steven Ekholm) (Translation)
Diario 16 (Spain) quotes from Manuel Rico's El raro vicio de escribir la vida:
El paraje en el que parecen crecer las siluetas retorcidas de fresnos centenarios parece brotar de un inmenso misterio (curiosamente, evocan también una rara, aunque muy conocida, novela, Cumbres borrascosas). (Translation)
Todo Literatura interviews the writer Claudia Schvartz:
Rolando Revagliatti: ¿En los universos de qué artistas te agradaría perderte (o encontrarte)? O bien, ¿a qué artistas hubieras elegido o elegirías para que te incluyeran en cuáles de sus obras como personaje o de algún otro modo?
CS: Ese sentimiento corresponde a mis lecturas de la pubertad. La primera adolescencia. Hubiera querido que nunca se terminaran los tres libros de Italo Calvino que aparecen bajo el título “Nuestros antepasados”: “El vizconde demediado”, “El barón rampante” y “El caballero inexistente”. Todas delicias. Otro, “Orlando”, de Virginia Wolf. Y de todavía más chica, algunos de Julio Verne, “Un capitán de quince años”, por ejemplo. Y un libro de historias de piratas, de un famoso autor cuyo nombre ahora no recuerdo. Más tarde, Carson McCullers, Clarice Lispector, Sara Gallardo. Y ah, el Alejandro Dumas de mi niñez. Y otra cita es “Cumbres borrascosas”, de Emily Brönte (sic), que no sé cuántas veces he leído, a decir verdad. (Translation)
