I’m Lane, your new Literary Fiction editor, and I’m excited to provide you with new book reviews, recommended reads, profiles of authors and characters, musings on movie adaptations, and more in my weekly newsletter.
If you have just joined our BellaOnline readership, welcome – from one newbie to another! If you’re familiar with the site, you might have noticed it undergoing fairly extensive renovations. Please let me know if you’re trying to find an old article that might have been jostled in the shuffle.
One recent addition to the site that I’ll highlight here is the World Literature subject. You’ll find the link at the bottom of the subject list on the Literary Fiction home page. Authors of serious fiction come from all over the world and write in dozens of languages, so here is where you’ll read about books in translation and stories from diverse cultures. Look out for these articles in upcoming newsletters as well.
Here are the latest articles featured on the site:
