When Berghain & Britney Spears Collide – Reading ‘Other People’s Clothes’ by Calla Henkel

Art imitates life in Calla Henkel’s dark and brilliant debut novel. I am very rarely drawn to thrillers, but after reading ‘Other People’s Clothes’ I can 100% feel the beginning of a crime novel phase. ‘2009.

Agnes Shakespeare, An Icon – Reading Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

A stunning insight into the people surrounding the most famous writer in the English-speaking world, Hamnet is a novel like no other.

How satisfying isContinue reading “Winter Books”

2020 Round Up

I have never in my life been so ready for NYE. That’s not because I’m going to a fun house party wearing a sparkly outfit and drinking gin with my friends (looks like Tier 4 Me will be doing the exact opposite), but because it means we can finally kiss goodbye to what is objectivelyContinue reading “2020 Round Up”
