It's reopening day for the Brontë Parsonage Museum today and we would like to wish them the very best of luck. Do remember that in order to be able to visit you must book a ticket first.

Vogue features writer Natasha Brown and her debut novel Assembly.
Natasha Brown was young – “not even in secondary school” – when she first read Wuthering Heights. She’d crept down to her grandparents’ basement, looking for a book to put her to sleep. “I started reading it and I stayed up all night,” she laughs. Today, the very same copy of Wuthering Heights peeks out from a shelf behind her in her Mile End home. “I pinched it,” she confides, turning the yellowing book over in her hands.
Brown, 31, is only a couple of years older than Emily Brontë was when she published that tale of wild and windy moors, but she is poised to cause similar uproar with Assembly, a scorching portrait of the British class system and its poisonous relationship with race, immigration, work and sexual politics.

Paste Magazine celebrates the 50th anniversary of the film The Abominable Dr. Phibes.
Directed by former art director/production designer Robert Fuest, who got the gig after helming a Wuthering Heights adaptation starring Timothy Dalton that was described as having “the unfortunate physical appearance of a vampire tale,” The Abominable Dr. Phibes leans into that heightened melodramatic aesthetic. Emily Brontë, meet Vincent Price. (Jacob Oller)
Far Out Magazine has an article on the influence of David Bowie on Kate Bush.
It comes as no surprise that Kate Bush was a huge David Bowie fan. The eclectic and experimental ‘Wuthering Heights’ genius took a lot of her cues from Bowie. (Mick McStarkey)
