Fiction is the best escape (at Foyles)
Just four of the wonderful people on stage last night at Fortunately the Milk at Westminster Central Hall. One of the best nights of my life.
It was a perfect night.
Over at the New Yorker, xo Orpheus: Fifty New Myths editor Kate Bernheimer selects some of her favorite retellings of the Orpheus myth, from d’Aulaire to Nick Cave. Like the book, it’s a fun read that demonstrates the passion Bernheimer feels towards her work. Updated myths and fairy tales are having a moment, and that’s a great thing for all of us.
