Copper Is The Breakout Hair-Color Trend To Watch For Summer 2019

When your allergies are acting up, you can't get a handle on what constitutes a weather-appropriate outfit, and you want to cry every day at 5 p.m. when you realize there's still two weeks until summer, you know it's high time for some kind of pick-me-up. You may not be able to put a hard stop to sniffles or splurge on a lightweight transitional jacket just like that, but an appointment with your colorist is all you really need to add a breath of fresh air to your whole look — and your frame of...

China voices strength, pushes nationalism around trade war

BEIJING (AP) — What do tilapia, Jane Austen and Chinese revolutionary poster art have in common? All have been used to rally public support around China’s position in its trade dispute with the U.S., as the ruling Communist Party takes a more aggressive approach — projecting stability and stirring up nationalistic sentiment in the process.

Copper Is The Hair-Color Trend To Watch For Spring 2019

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: I received a cop...

Racist jokes may be worse than racist statements

Jane Austen’s Emma Woodhouse tells her father, “Mr. Knightley loves to find fault with me, you know—in a joke—it is all a joke.” Mr. Knightley isn’t joking, as he and Emma know; he presents his criticisms without a hint of jocularity. But if Emma persuades Mr. Woodhouse to believe Mr. Knightley is joking, he “would not suspect such a circumstance as her not being thought perfect by everyone.” A little over 200 years after Emma was published, the comedian Roseanne Barr defended a racist tweet abo...

The Best YA Books Written By Black Women That You Haven't Read Yet

Angie Thomas. Nicola Yoon. Tomi Adeyemi. Even if you’re not that into young adult literature (YA), you probably already know those three names. Their respective young-adult debuts either became blockbuster movies (Thomas’s The Hate U Give), book-club juggernauts (Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone), instantly beloved teen classics (Yoon’s Everything, Everything) or all of the above. These authors — all Black women — have dominated YA bestseller lists and changed the face of a genre that seeme...

10 Books About Ourselves and Our World

I'm an eclectic reader. My shelves contain a healthy mix of literary fiction, fantasy, mystery, and even middle grade novels. Sitting right next to all of that escape reading are a good number of true stories, science, history, essays, and biography. These days, I doubt I could name just one genre or subject as my favorite, but when I was in elementary school, I used to tell people that biography was my go-to. Today's roundup highlights the nonfiction titles I've added to my April reading...

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...

Fanny Burney in her own words

Born in 1752,  Frances Burney  (better known as Fanny Burney) was well known as a satirical novelist in her time, anonymously publishing her first book,  Evelina , in 1778. Despite her literary influence, Fanny Burney is a name unknown to many aside from the most ardent scholars. Did you know, for instance, that the title of Jane Austen’s  Pride and Prejudice   comes from the pages of Burney’s  Cecilia ? In the eighteenth century, female authors were uncommon due (in part) to social expectati...

The 7 Best Paul Rudd Roles

The 7 Best Paul Rudd Roles Paul Rudd is likable. There is no better single word to describe him. He may not be lauded for range, but only because he likes to shoot comedies so much. As films like Perks of Being a Wallflower show, he is perfectly capable in dramas. But his ability to draw a comedic audience is nearly unmatched. His likeability is almost to the detriment of some of his roles. You may find yourself rooting for even his dumbest and most inconsiderate characters because of th...

Amazon makes it easy to buy the wrong version of your favorite book — I published my own work of classic literature to see for myself

Anyone can publish text that's in the public domain, meaning there are plenty of bizarrely formatted versions of classic novels out there. Amazon conflates the reviews for multiple editions of a title, making it difficult to tell what you’re actually buying. One customer's story of getting a bizarrely-formatted version of "Pride and Prejudice" led me to track down the copy's origins — and publish my own edition of a classic book using Amazon's tools. Danielle Kurtzleben wanted a copy of "Prid...

Plan For Jane Austen Statue At Winchester Cathedral Dropped After Public Objects

“The cathedral had commissioned the sculptor Martin Jennings to create a statue of Austen for its inner close … [But] residents and local groups submitted ‘a barrage of criticism’ in response to the plans. ‘There is a strong body of opinion that rejects the idea of another Jane Austen statue anywhere, or any statue at all in the cathedral close,’ wrote one resident.” – The Guardian

The 18-Year-Long Story Behind Mr. Malcolm's List

Great stories take time, and it took plenty of it to create Refinery29's latest Shatterbox film Mr. Malcolm's List.Writer Suzanne Allain first dreamt up the plot 18 years ago in the form of a short story about a man's list of qualifications for a romantic partner — and what happened when it got into the wrong hands. That seemingly simple premise became the starting point of Allain's Jane Austen-inspired novel, Mr. Malcolm's List.Years later, Allain decided to turn her novel into a screenplay, i...

Filmmaker Emma Holly Jones On Mr. Malcolm's List, Jane Austen & Tinder In 19th Century London

If you ask her, Emma Holly Jones was practically born to make Mr. Malcolm's List. "I grew up in love with Jane Austen," the 30-year-old filmmaker says. "I'm named after Emma, I've always had that book on my bedside table, and I've watched every period drama that's ever been made."Jones never thought she would have a chance to create a new period piece — an Austen remake, sure, but something truly original seemed too rare a find. Enter Suzanne Allain's Mr. Malcolm's List, and the screenplay's ri...

7 Romantic, Non-Lame, Can’t-Miss DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Gal

Valentine’s Day is in two weeks; have you thought about what you’re going to get for your lady love? Chocolates and flowers are pretty boring and cliche. Jewelry is expensive, and equally unoriginal. She might swear she wants “nothing,” but what she usually means is that she doesn’t want anything big. She’s probably still hoping for some small acknowledgment of the holiday, even just a card. And if she thinks she’s okay with your skipping even that, she’d still be thrilled — especially so give...
