The novelist George Gissing (1857-1903). His best novels, in my opinion, are New Grub Street (1991), about the literary 'industry,' and The Odd Women (1893), which examines the position of women in society at that time.

Terrific, rare, 1969 BBC interview with Nabokov. On the pleasure and drudgery of writing: "After a month or so, I get used to the book’s final stage, to its having been weaned from my brain. I now regard it with a kind of amused tenderness as a man regards not his son, but the young wife of his son."
"A prefatory glow, not unlike some benign variety of the aura before an epileptic attack, is something the artist learns to perceive very early in life."

I see her face at night. It's what I dream. What I feel when the cold wind hits my back.The sun rises every morning and all I see is her beautiful, silk hair. A kiss on the head is my last solid memory, I hope because my memories never make sense.

Olivia Hallinan— makeup and hair are glorious.
My name is Jeneva Blesk and I was born and raised in District 3, Technology. I'm 16, almost 17, and the second oldest out of 4. Well almost four, seeing as mom's got another on the way. Kaden's my older brother, age 22 and married. Lora's only 6 and always running about. I'm what people call petite, with hair the color of chestnuts and pale blue-grey eyes. Freckles run in the family and I'm no exception. My dad is the mayor, so I'm more privileged than most. Despite that, I still work hard in learning all I can. In 3 we make circuit boards and programs that are used in everything from hovercrafts to the mandatory screens in everyone's houses. Currently I'm trying to master the wiring and programming for bombs. It's given me a bit of challenge but I'm determined to figure it out. I'm not an aggressive person and some people take advantage of that, pushing me around. I try to help others out as much as I can, despite my introverted personality. With my family status, my name hasn't been entered more than the mandatory once each year. I haven't had to worry about the Reaping as much as others, but it's still an ever-present thought in the back of my mind.
Lark Rise to Candleford - love watching the season with my family!!
