What you should be reading here is an enthusiastic review of Susannah Clapp’s glorious biographical tribute to her friend, A Card from Angela Carter, and you should have been reading it in time for Women’s Day. Alas! This week has got completely out of hand here at casa Litlove. Lots going on, which I will tell you about very soon.
For the moment, a couple of things.
First, the winner of the William Boyd giveaway is: Bookboxed! If you could be so good as to drop me an email with your address, I will pop Waiting for Sunrise in the post to you.
Secondly, one of the reasons why this week has been busy is that Mister Litlove and I have been working on a complete overhaul of this blog. It has looked exactly the same for the past almost-six years, and I finally decided that a renovation was in order. I’m very excited about this as it is going to look so very different. I’m also planning some indexes, of reviews I’ve written and theorists I’ve written about, but with almost-six years of blogging and over a thousand posts, it takes a bit of time. I’m also collecting together here a great deal of my writing, from academia as well as other places on the web. So, all in all massive changes planned.
For that reason, I’m taking a short break and won’t be posting next week. I’ll be back, however, to take part in Mel u’s Irish Short Story week (for which he has kindly agreed I may read an essay – one from Colm Toibin’s new collection on writers and their families). I will also have several reviews to catch up on.
Have a great week and do hope you’ll like the new-look blog!
