A depressing and somewhat sensationalistic

but of course also on that front rather grippingly interesting piece at the Guardian: Yehuda Koren and Eilat Negev on the relationship between Ted Hughes and Assia Wevill, who killed herself and the child she had with Hughes four years after the death of Sylvia Plath. (The first place I think I read about Assia Wevill was Fay Weldon's extremely interesting and scatterbrained memoir Auto Da Fay.)


  1. Hi,

    Just wanted to say that I am a big fan of Heredity, but I had no idea that you had a blog until the recent award. On which congratulations.


  2. I too am a big fan of Heredity.

    I found your blog today via the Columbia U website. (I work for columbia too). just how exactly do you read so much? you must be a speedreader, in addition to your other talents. you are just too smart for this world!
