[Dear readers, please enjoy this belated Book Beat! Your regularly-scheduled Mighty Marvel Monday will return this afternoon. — Ed.]
I haven’t read any of Toni Morrison’s books (I know!) but regardless, she’s one of THE great American authors and who doesn’t want to read about her? Her new book, God Help the Child, is out this month.
I don’t normally talk about trailers on Book Beat but man, I haven’t wanted to see a book adapted film as bad as I do now.
…and I say, “duh”. This study doesn’t surprise me which has found that men are dominating British and American literary criticism with the London Review of Books featuring “527 male authors and critics on their pages in 2014, compared with just 151 women”.
Oh man. Come ON, guys. We need to change this.
If you’re in Canada on May 2nd, drop by your local indie bookstore and you’ll most likely be greeted by an author who’ll volunteer their time as a guest bookseller! I’m personally hoping for Margaret Atwood…
