Charlotte Eriksson Charlotte Eriksson's blog:
“I will have poetry in my life, and adventure! And love. Love above all. Not the artful postures of love, but love that overthrows life. Unbiddable, ungovernable, like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture.”

- Shakespeare in Love
(via theglasschild)

Ευχαριστήθηκα την ανάγνωση της Κάρις μας, του εμβληματικού μυθιστορήματος του Θιόντορ Ντράιζερ. Το βιβλίο είναι γραμμένο στην εκπνοή του 19ου αιώνα και για αυτό είναι ακόμα φανερή η επιρροή του Ντίκενς στην αφήγηση, όμως η λογοτεχνία ήδη είχε αρχίσει να αλλάζει∙ πρόκειται για ένα από τα πρώτα να...

It seems to me that, in most cases, the people we admire and aim to emulate often have no idea how well they’re thought of. Particularly, I think it’s true of women. We often don’t know our worth, and how would we when no one really talks about their inspirations?

I’m here to change that. Because...

Kate Atkinson Interview with Kate Atkinson
The year is 1940, and Juliet Armstrong is on the trail of Nazi collaborators. Juliet isn't some high-living MI5 femme fatale; the protagonist of Transcription , a new novel by Kate Atkinson, is just an unworldly, if cynical, 18-year-old girl who writes up surveilled sessions between fascist sympathizers. But though she's a minor cog in the war effort among the secret agents and bureaucrats, she's soon pulled into bigger things—events that haunt her years later. ...more
