Today I have a little bit of a digression from my week of reading Rose Macaulay, as I have a new review up on Shiny New Books of a fascinating new book.

The writer and philosopher Hannah Arendt is best known for coining the phrase ‘the banality of evil’; it’s a concept which has caused controversy over the years, but her life and thought make for intriguing reading. This new work “On Love and Tyranny” by Ann Heberlein, translated by Alice Menzies, explores both aspects and is a really thought-provoking read. You can find my full review here!
