Reading Challenge Update and Women Artists

I've read a lot of books since I posted last, so I'll just list the two best ones:

My Dear I Wanted To Tell You - Louise Young
World war one through the experiences of three women and two men. Very well written.

Towards Another Summer - Janet Frame
A woman believes that she is turning into a migratory bird. I love Janet Frame's writing, try Owls Do Cry or Faces in the Water next.

And, here's a list of, often unknown or unrecognised, modern (ish) female artists. Google them for more information:

  • Shirin Neshat
  • Teresa Margolles
  • Marina Abromavic
  • Tracey Emin
  • Louise Beorgious
  • Kiki Smith
  • Francesca Woodman
  • Kara Walker
