    After the Scandi noir boom, dark tales from British authors are making waves abroad. Publishers, agents and authors take up the case When ex-paramedic Daniel Cole signed with agent Sue Armstrong, he was “delighted”. When Armstrong bagged him a six-figure, three-book deal from a British publisher he was “in shock”. But after a fierce fight between German publishers over his debut crime novel, Ragdoll, saw him signing for a record-breaking seven figures, Cole found himself among a group of British authors toppling Scandinavian writers from their perch at the summit of bestseller lists around (...) -- Crime fiction, Publishing, Books, Culture, Fiction

    One of America’s most notorious murder cases inspires this feverish debut about family resentments and frustrations “Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41 …” A century and a quarter after Andrew and Abby Borden were murdered with a hatchet on a sweltering Massachusetts morning, the skipping rhyme still resonates and the case of Lizzie Borden – arrested, tried and acquitted by a jury unable to believe a woman could do such a thing – continues to fascinate. It has been immortalised in countless books, a TV series, a short (...) -- Fiction, True crime, Books, Culture, Women

    The Handmaid’s Tale author’s appearance in the TV version of her novel is only the latest in a surprisingly illustrious roll call of bookish bit parts Be honest: at some point in our lives, most of us have dreamed about being slapped across the face by Margaret Atwood. But we literary masochists must settle for living vicariously through actor Elizabeth Moss, who receives a smart smack to the face from the author, when Atwood appears as a guard at the centre where Moss’s character Offred is indoctrinated in the ways of America’s new theocracy. Seeing the author turn villain to her heroine is (...) -- Margaret Atwood, Thomas Pynchon, Stephen King, Books, Culture, Gillian Flynn, Hunter S Thompson, John le Carré

    Artist was creator of beloved characters such as Minnie the Minx and the Bash Street Kids Leo Baxendale, the creator of Beano favourites Minnie the Minx and the Bash Street Kids, has died at the age of 86. Baxendale’s fresh and energetic style, combined with his drawings of anarchic fun in strips including Little Plum, The Three Bears and Lord Snooty, made him a favourite for generations of British children, as well as an inspiration for comics artists. The comics historian Denis Gifford has called him “the most influential and most imitated comics artist of modern times” and he was inducted (...) -- The Beano, Comics and graphic novels, Books, Culture, UK news

    This stunning Bangalore-set family drama underlines the necessity of reading beyond our borders Ghachar Ghochar is the English-language debut of a writer already established as a leading figure in both the pan-Indian and Kannada-language literary scenes. Once again, reading beyond our tiny borders shows us what we’ve been missing, and proves the necessity of translation for a dynamic literary culture: Ghachar Ghochar is both fascinatingly different from much Indian writing in English, and provides a masterclass in crafting, particularly on the power of leaving things unsaid. In fewer than (...) -- Fiction in translation, Books, Culture, Fiction

    The American poet goes for laughs in recounting her midwest Catholic upbringing, complete with anti-abortion rallies and virginity pledges “My father despises cats. He believes them to be Democrats. He considers them to be little mean hillary clintons covered all over with feminist legfur.” Patricia Lockwood’s dazzling comic memoir is set in midwest America and centres on a man who likes to clean his gun, listen to Rush Limbaugh and drink from a mug that reads “I love my ‘white-collar’ job” – despite being married with five children, he is a Catholic priest. Father Lockwood, as presented here, is (...) -- Autobiography and memoir, Books, Culture, Biography, Patricia Lockwood

    The 22-year-old, who won best young actor at Venice, stars in François Ozon’s post-first world war drama – and says the societal problems of that time are returning Old before her time, it is said of Paula Beer, which is meant as a compliment. She is the star of Frantz, from mercurial director François Ozon. It is set in the broken months after the first world war, and Beer plays a sheltered but slowly blooming young German widow. The movies always need new faces, yet more than one observer has remarked that something about Beer – a certain silent expressiveness – makes her look as if she (...) -- François Ozon, Film, Culture

    Director reveals both films will ‘collide’ in the new movie titled Glass, with Unbreakable’s Samuel L Jackson taking a lead role alongside Bruce Willis and Split’s James McAvoy The Sixth Sense director M Night Shyamalan has announced that his new film will act as a sequel to both Split, his recent hit multiple-personality thriller starring James McAvoy, and Unbreakable, the 2000 superhero film featuring Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson. Shyamalan revealed the new project, titled Glass, in a series of tweets that said the director could “finally answer the #1 question I get, ‘Are you making a (...) -- M Night Shyamalan, Split, Samuel L Jackson, James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Film, Culture

    Fiction meshes with footage of street protests and vox-pop interviews in Shola Amoo’s heartfelt docudrama about gentrification in Brixton Despite some rough edges, there is a warmth and an ease to this shoestring debut from NFTS graduate Shola Amoo – a docudrama about gentrification in Brixton, south London. Tanya Fear plays Nina, who returns to Brixton after some years away, intent on making a film about people getting priced out of their own neighbourhood. As her project develops, she has complicated feelings for local performance artist Ayo (Aki Omoshaybi) and also for an up-and-coming (...) -- Drama, Film, Culture, Housing, Communities

    Set in a posh Irish boarding school, John Butler’s film focuses on an unlikely friendship between a star rugby player and his sensitive roommate Writer-director John Butler won hearts and minds with his 2013 comedy The Stag; this new movie is about homophobia and conformism in a posh Irish boarding school. Very clearly, it is a personal and autobiographical project for him. For me, Handsome Devil exists in a Venn diagram tonal overlap between John Carney’s Sing Street and Lenny Abrahamson’s What Richard Did. Music is a vital lifeline for the kids growing up who feel alone – who are quiet or (...) -- Drama, Film, Culture, Comedy, Comedy
