The Year of Reading Women


I am honoured to be included in Joanna Walsh’s Read Women 2014 list of 250 female writers you must read this year.

The recent campaign, based on a series of Cartes de Voeux (a French tradition of New Year cards), features five illustrated bookmarks by Joanna Walsh of Gertrude Stein, Deborah Levy, Simone de Beauvoir, Marguerite Duras, Anne Carson and Djuna Barnes.

To read more about the campaign follow the twitter hashtag #readwomen2014 or visit the Guardian’s article online: “Female authors are marginalised by newspapers and literary journals, and their books are given ‘girly’ covers. Take action against this inequality by making sure the next book you read is by a woman…”
