Friday Links, 8 September 2017

Friday links is where I post links to blogs and websites I want to remember without cluttering up my browser bookmarks, along with interesting articles, reviews and lists I want to bring to the notice of others, and other stuff I find on the web.

I should be in Germany by now, after a short visit to Alsace in France.

Here's today's mixed bag of links:

  • I recently read and reviewed West With the Night by Beryl Markham and when I was researching the book's background I discovered that there are those that claim it was written by a man. I also recently reread Cold Comfort Farm, in which a male character is working on a book in which he claims to prove that all of the Brontë sisters' books were in fact written by their brother Branwell. This got me thinking about women, patriarchy and authorship, and then I came across this article: Harper Lee: the 'great lie' she didn't write Mockingbird rears its head again. What does it tell us that its usually women authors who get this shit? (The only male author I can think of who regularly is claimed to have not written the works attributed to him is William Shakespeare).
The List:

Let's Get Graphic: 100 Favorite Comics And Graphic Novels. Of these, I have read 4 in full and 2 in part. I have read one online occasionally, one I follow semi-religiously online, and one I have just started reading online. Finally, one is waiting to be read on my TBR shelf, but I want to read several more.
