Harper Lee Started A True Crime Book, But Never Finished It – Why?

What a heartbreak her life was after To Kill a Mockingbird, and her attempted true-crime book turned out similarly: “Despite amassing more than enough Maxwelliana for a book, she could not get traction in the prose. That’s a common enough problem, of course; nothing writes itself, and no matter how many pages a reporting trip yields, the one that matters most always starts out blank. Everyone told Lee that the story she had found was destined to be a brilliant book. But no one could tell her ho...

This Sacred Greek Island Hasn’t Had New Art For 5,000 Years, But That’s About To Change

The Delos experiment: “In the absence of human contact – only guards and archaeologists have inhabited Delos in more recent times – the remains of a sanctuary and entire city have survived like nowhere else in Greece. It is in this unspoilt idyll that Greek authorities have undertaken an experiment as exciting as it is ambitious. At its centre is Sir Antony Gormley. The British sculptor has created 29 iron ‘bodyforms,’ several cast from his own body, that are to be the first artworks to be inst...

Latinx People Are A Deeply Reliable Movie Audience, But Where Are The Latinx Movie Stars?

There’s some massive underrepresentation, and certainly underfunding. For the new El Chicano, for instance, the filmmaker says, “It took a bunch of Canadian hockey fans to get behind an all-Latino movie set in East L.A.” He also “remembers one studio note in particular: ‘If you could figure out a Caucasian influence, that will help its prospects.'”  – The Hollywood Reporter

Doreen Spooner, Who Blazed A Trail On Fleet Street, Has Died At 91

Spooner made her name with a photo of the woman at the center of the John Profumo scandal, but she did much more. “‘Who’d ever imagine a woman might be a photographer on a national newspaper?’ she wrote in a 2016 memoir. ‘A woman might be a tart or a monarch, but a press photographer?'” – The New York Times

Britain Is On The Hunt For A New Poet Laureate After Being Turned Down By Its First Pick

Medieval Studies (Yes, Medieval Studies) Is Actively At The Heart Of Debates Over White Supremacy

The fault lies in contemporary politics, of course, but also in the origins of the discipline: “In Europe, academic study of the Middle Ages developed in tandem with a romantic nationalism that rooted the nation-state in an idealized past populated by Anglo-Saxons and other supposedly distinct ‘races.’ In the United States, universities, cultural institutions and wealthy elites drew on Gothic architecture, heraldry and other medieval trappings to ground American identity in a noble (and implici...

It’s Time For Summer Music Festivals, And One Has Finally Figured Out Equal Gender Representation

It’s a pop music festival, of course (where are we with that equal rep, classical and new music festivals?). But not of course, because no other festival has achieved anything like parity. Says the Primavera fest: “It can be done now and it should be done now, but you need to want it. We hope that our move can spark change.” – The Guardian (UK)

Lady in the Dark - An Enlightening Journey

Reviewed by Judd Hollander The one thing most people will tell you when it comes to dreams is that they often don't make sense. Either literally or chronologically. Different people from various aspects of one’s life coming together in ways not possible in the waking world, but making perfect sense in the context of the dream. As for what it all means, that's a matter for psychoanalytic study. It’s also the premise Moss Hart, Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin used as a starting point for the 1941...

Almost Thirty Years Of A Famous, Fan Fave Comic Series Focused On Latina Punks

The comic, or maybe graphic novel series, Love and Rockets is “the rare pop cultural artifact that renders Latinas not as archetypes, but as rich and profound human beings full of messy contradiction and ambivalence. Over the years, Hernandez’s characters have aged and their hairstyles have become more sedate. Some of their faces have grown angular; their bodies, more doughy. In the new comic, in which a group of former punks attempt to relive their youth for a weekend, a group of women joke ab...

Did Leonardo Stop Painting Because Of A Fall And Resulting Nerve Damage?

Some have suggested it was as stroke, but he showed no other signs of impairment. His injury suggests it may have been something else: “The ulnar nerve runs from the shoulder to the little finger, and manages almost all the intrinsic hand muscles that allow fine motor movements, so a fall could have caused trauma to his upper arm, leading to the palsy, or weakness.” – BBC

Another WWII Movie? Yes, And A Necessary One

The movie Where Hands Touch is about a young adult romance – about what happened to the generation of biracial young Germans who were born to white German mothers and French colonial African soldiers during and after WWI. Director Amma Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom) “poured into it her fears that racism and bigotry are flourishing today. ‘We wonder about Nazi Germany and how it got that way. It started with language and scapegoating, and we’re using a lot of [that same]language today,’ she s...

Sometimes, TV Lets People Just Be People

That is to say, occasionally trans women get cast as women, no need to elaborate, and sometimes trans men get cast as men, ditto. But. “While television has made great strides in L.G.B.T.Q. inclusion with shows such as Orange Is the New Black and Pose, when trans actors are called in to read for a project, they still find they are only considered for parts specifically written for transgender people.” –The New York Times
