    Problems of sexual politics, bisexuality and authorship are explored in this sequel to the cult romance Pages for You ‘How many loves in a lifetime? One? Three? None? Nine? Flannery was pretty sure she knew her number ... One was plenty.” Pages for Her is Sylvia Brownrigg’s sequel to her 2001 lesbian romance, Pages for You, in which a 17-year-old student at Yale University falls passionately in love with a 28-year-old teaching assistant, Anne Arden. In the sequel, set 20 years on, Flannery is a novelist, married woman and mother to a daughter, Willa. Invited to speak at a writers’ conference (...) -- Fiction, Books, Culture, Sexuality

    The author and pop-culture theorist talks to Lanre Bakare about peak TV, Taylor Swift, why everything is political – and how he inadvertently predicted Trump In the introduction to your new book, you say reading your old work is the ‘worst kind of time machine.’ Is it that awful, looking back at these pieces? Yes, because I’m just compelled to want to rewrite everything I’ve ever written. My dream life would have been if I could have written my first book forever and never have it come out … but be rich. Every time I go back and I read something that I’ve written before, I see things that could (...) -- Books, Culture, Pop and rock, Music, Donald Trump

    It’s a particularly fruitful year for the bestselling author, with big and small screen adaptations on the way – but what makes his work so consistently popular? To say that Stephen King is “back” would be an absurd statement. The man never really goes anywhere, permanently inhabiting his sliver of the spotlight with a steady stream of novels, short story collections, loose magazine pieces, and less formally, his alternately bemused and biting tweets. King topped the New York Times’ bestseller list last year with his latest novel, End of Watch, and he collaborated with his son Owen on a (...) -- Stephen King, Books, Horror, Horror, Culture, Fiction, Film, US television, Television, Television & radio

    The story of a Lincoln schoolgirl’s disappearance captures the fissures of a country riven by class division In Adam Thorpe’s new novel, the story of a Lincoln schoolgirl’s disappearance is subtly enmeshed with the lives of six other characters, whose paths she crosses over several months in 2012. Seeking an escape from her chaotic home life, 14-year-old Fay is taken under the wing of Sheena, the manager of a chic childrenswear shop, who supervises her work experience and takes a shine to her feistiness. To most of the other characters, though, she is someone only half seen. Retired steel (...) -- Fiction, Books, Culture

    When an innocuous news report about evolution suddenly starts developing a great deal of complexity, it suggests we're entering new territory for both science and journalism Science doesn't know everything. This is a common statement made by those whose views or theories on something differ from what science tells us. And of course it's true; science doesn't know everything. If it did, it would stop happening. The absence of complete knowledge is arguably integral to science as it is currently understood. Whatever the ramifications of science not knowing everything, one of the positives (...) -- Science, Evolution, Media, Daily Mail

    It is a plant that millions depend on for survival. But another, identical variety can be lethal – and desperate people turning to the black market can’t tell them apart Venezuela has suffered food shortages for several years but things only seem to be getting worse. People are resorting to the black market for food, skipping meals and rummaging through garbage in search of sustenance. Last year three quarters of adults involuntarily lost an average of 19lb. Malnutrition is on the rise and people are being exposed to lethal foods. At least 28 people have died as a result of eating bitter (...) -- Science, Food poverty, Poverty, Venezuela, Health, World news

    ‘After two hours of drinking vodka, General Boris suggested we just do the shoot at his house’ Star City is a self-contained city for cosmonauts about an hour from Moscow. Astronauts still come from all over the world to get trained there. It might look dated but, underneath, the important stuff is all working. As well as a training centre, it has a launch site, a technical department, a school, and a hospital – everything really. During the cold war, when there was a lot of money going into the space race, it was an important place. That’s not so much the case now. We are all awed by space – (...) -- Photography, Art and design, Culture, Space

    I recently decided to abandon the rules which govern nature for the rules which govern people and markets: economics. Why would I do such a thing? I love physics. Brick-by-brick, you can build new theories from established ones and know that they will apply not just on Earth but throughout the entire Universe. The up-sides are incredible: I worked on the theory and simulation of plasmas (the stuff stars are made of) for nuclear fusion. If nuclear fusion succeeds in its objectives, it could mean the end of our reliance on fossil fuels, the end of climate change, and energy security for at (...) -- Science, Physics, Economics, Bank of England
