‘I’m 51, I can say what I want’: Leone Ross has overcome her fears
More than 15 years in the writing, Ross’ new novel This One Sky Day is a glorious achievement. So why did it take so long?There is the difficult second novel, but for some writers there is also the far more difficult third novel. And so it was for Leone Ross, who in the 1990s published two well-received works of fiction, All the Blood Is Red and Orange Laughter. The first, a visceral group portrait of four women that moved between London and Jamaica, was longlisted for what is now the Women’s prize for fiction; the second, which tells the story of a man descending into madness in the tunnels of the New York subway as he reckons with the legacy of the civil rights movement and his upbringing, appeared on Wasafiri magazine’s list of its 25 most influential novels.Then, although their author worked steadily and productively as an editor and as a teacher of creative writing, and although she continued to produce pieces of short fiction, the novels ceased to come. As Leone Ross prepares to publish This One Sky Day, a novel at least 15 years in the writing, I ask her what happened to keep her quiet for so long? Continue reading...

Schubert: Winterreise review – high drama from Joyce DiDonato
(Erato)DiDonato, Nézet-SéguinThe star mezzo, with illustrious accompaniment, makes Schubert’s great song cycle her ownThe wanderer in Schubert’s Winterreise, a cycle of 24 songs for voice and piano, travels a landscape of bleak hopes and frozen tears. Written for tenor but sung by voices of every range, it has long attracted mezzo-sopranos, from Brigitte Fassbaender to Alice Coote. The latest is the American star Joyce DiDonato, who unveiled her reading at New York’s Carnegie Hall in 2019 (when this recording was made). Her illustrious, reflective partner is the Canadian conductor-pianist Yannick Nézet-SéguinSome of Wilhelm Müller’s poems refer to “he” or “she”, but this suffering soul could be any one of us. Drawing on her formidable range of vocal colour, DiDonato captures the drama within each song, and across the cycle: the dislocated mood of Erstarrung (Numbness), the simplicity, then hopelessness, of Der Lindenbaum (The Linden Tree), the gothic terror of Irrlicht (Will-o’-the-wisp), the pounding pathos of Die Post (The Mail Coach). Any fan will enjoy the insight DiDonato brings. You might go back to your favourite tenor afterwards, but you’ll have thought about this masterpiece anew. Continue reading...

Gary Player’s apartheid history is not quite as smooth as his Augusta retelling | Andy Bull
Player invited Lee Elder to play in South Africa and was praised by Nelson Mandela but admits his past is not blamelessIt has been almost 50 years since Lee Elder became the first black man to play in the Masters, and five months since Augusta National announced they were at last going to mark his achievement by inviting him to join Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player as one of the tournament’s honorary starters. So long that when the moment finally came around early on Thursday morning, Elder, who is 86, wasn’t able to get up and swing a club. Instead he sat and watched as Player and Nicklaus did. It was a poignant moment, despite the way Player’s son (and caddie) Wayne, hovered over Elder’s shoulder cradling a branded box of golf balls, like a model on the shopping channel.

Line Of Duty's Martin Compston Promises Episode 4 Is 'One Of The Best Ever'
Line Of Duty star Martin Compston has teased that there is high drama ahead in the upcoming episode, revealing it is “one of the best ever”. The actor, who plays DI Steve Arnott, said episode four of the current series has the potential to be considered a “classic” among fans, describing it as “the big one”. Posting a picture of Arnott aiming a gun in a tense-looking situation, he wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning: “Tomorrow’s the big one episode 4! On paper one of the best @jed_mercurio has ever written, if we deliver what was there potential to be a classic.“Like to give a shout out to the young team Shalom and @gregorypiper98 who give outstanding performances in the midst of the madness.”Tomorrow’s the big one episode 4!

We’ll be here to bring you all the latest analysis after the show airs on Sunday night too. While all major spoilers are under lock and key, the BBC has shared a cryptic synopsis of the episode, which reveals there will be some “major breakthroughs” as AC-12 continue their investigation into Operation Lighthouse. It reads: “DCI Jo Davidson faces increasing pressure from all sides as AC-12 make major breakthroughs in the investigation.“Hastings acknowledges that the disciplinary action against him put Kate and Steve in a difficult position, and a forensic report from Farida’s house results in a shock for AC-12.”Last Sunday’s episode saw corrupt police officer and OCG member Ryan Pilkington make an attempt on suspect Terry Boyle’s life by derailing a police escort and causing the car to crash into a lake. Boyle has been framed by the OCG as the main suspect in the murder of journalist Gail Vella, who was investigating police corruption prior to her death. Davidson was also seen in contact with the OCG after DSU Ian Buckells was arrested on suspicion on being in league with organised crime. Some fans also believed they spotted a major clue about the elusive “H” in the unlikeliest of places during the episode. Line Of Duty continues on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One. READ MORE:29 Line Of Duty Memes That Reveal The True Horror Of Online DatingLine Of Duty's Gregory Piper Reveals Ingenious Way He Prepared For Filming Freezing Lake Crash Scenes12 Burning Questions We Have After Line Of Duty's Mind-Melting Third Episode
