On Closure & Crime

Elizabeth Chakrabarty

Twice in my life, when I’ve least expected it – relaxed in a bar with acquaintances, a glass of wine in my hand – someone has asked me this question: “When did you realize you’re not white?”

Read Elizabeth Chakrabarty’s exclusive essay On Closure and Crime, written to support the publication of her novel Lessons in Love and Other Crimes.

Control of our destinies

Sam Mills

Current attacks on women who failed to fight or speak up remind me of the way that men were treated when they came back from the First World War. Their shell shock was initially downplayed and derided because in the public imagination the men ought to have returned as jolly war heroes rather than wrecked and distraught souls suffering hallucinations and the shakes.

Read Sam Mills’s exclusive essay Control of Our Destinies, written to support the publication of her Mood Indigo essay Chauvo-Feminism: On Sex, Power and #MeToo.
