lilith heeft een startnummer voor de Dodentocht #19voor2019

De boer achter ons huis liet de koeien weer op...

What You’re Not Gonna Do [Vox]


This weekend, I’ve spent the majority of my Internet time swatting detractors of my latest piece on Vox about the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT). Here, an excerpt:





Essentially, these schools enshrined into law the right to ignore school performance, grades, interviews, standardiz...

It’s not a self-help book, it’s not stuffed with lessons and things that you can apply to your own struggles necessarily, but it is a book that is seari...

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
