Women Writers

For the day after International Women's Day, this about the longlist for the Orange Prize. Some very interesting choices; I suppose the Smiths - Ali and Zadie - were a given, but it's always good to see Helen Dunmore and Sarah Waters, and there are some new voices to investigate as well. The article also mentions the new large advances being commanded by the likes of Zadie Smith - perhaps a certain JKR has had something to do with that move towards gender equalization as well?

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
