It’s set to be another chilly, rainy UK summer weekend (sob, sob, sob). BUT surely the rain is excuse enough to lie in bed with coffee, toast and a couple of good reads? I’ve spent far too long reading the internet this week, so I’ve put down three of the best bits that I’ve seen here.
Emma Cline’s first novel just came out this week and if you’ve been reading any magazine, newspaper or blog that touches on fiction, you will probably have heard about it. It’s 100% the next book on my To Read list – here’s an interview with Emma where she talks about not having a smart phone and writing from a shed.
Japanese photographer, Yoshinori Mizutani’s, most recent photo collection manages to make walking I through the city in the rain look gorgeously colourful and appealing. (Hard to imagine right?) Anyway, take a look – kind of reminds me of the British summer…
The referendum on the EU is looming and the media coverage is pretty relentless. I recently read this piece in The Guardian where European authors such as Elena Ferrante (my fave), Javier Marias and Timur Vermes share their thoughts on the EU. It need not be said that they put it so much more convincingly than the politicians.
