  • Jane Austen is indeed replacing Darwin on the £10 note.
  • Margaret Atwood has written an opera, fifteen years in development, about the poet Pauline Johnson.
  • The letters of Roald Dahl, spanning most of his life, will be published in 2016.
  • This map, a “chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the comings and goings of characters in the The Great Gatsby,” is lovely.
