Winterson on Myth

A past student of mine - bless her heart - sent me the link to this interview between Bill Moyers and Jeanette Winterson, which I would otherwise have missed. If you're at all familiar with her work, you will have heard or read her schtick about her mother and being forbidden books more than once, and she doesn't have a great deal new to say about myth and heroes, but she's always interesting. She fairly crackles with energy and enthusiasm for life; that's what I like best about her. I'd love to have lunch with her one day.

  • RIP Ray Bradbury

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
