The Austen Project is the reimagining of all six published novels by Jane Austen; with the recent release of Joanna Trollope's take on Sense and Sensibility and the announcement that Alexander McCall Smith will be reworking Emma my friends over at The Yorker and I had a little debate about whether or not Jane Austen's classic works could be successfully translated into a modern setting. And I would love it if you would have a little listen and let me know your thoughts! ;)

Deanna Rodger shares her emotional and powerful response to Lily Allen's "Hard out Here" - whether you agree with her views on the video or not it's hard to not feel the passion behind her words delivered in such an eloquent and (dare I say powerful again?) awesome way. Hope you enjoy!

A short novel about a boy (based on Neil himself) who discovers that the universe is full of secrets beyond his wildest dreams. The themes of memories, love and loss are brilliantly exposed in a unknown and vast world of magic and chaos. It was tightly written novel packed with elaborate magical realism that I couldn't help but believe. The last couple chapters had me in tears and the afterglow lasted for days. Never has a book touched my heart so deeply.
