Im from the city that never sleeps
martinis filled my nights
coffee filled my days
classic cinema captivates me
the human body fascinates me
sensuality is sexy to me
fashion motivates me
Books are my escape so fasten your seat belts its going to be a bumpy night!.
On the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 children’s classic “Harriet the Spy,” Anna Holmes compares the book’s protagonist to Scout Finch of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and explores how these characters taught young girls to celebrate nonconformity: http://nyr.kr/P5YlIr
“In 1960, more women than ever were marrying, and at younger ages; it’s possible that Fitzhugh and Lee, whose protagonists are considered by biographers and scholars to be their alter egos, were registering their protest against the ubiquity of marriage and subtly agitating for female independence.”
