jadedjournalista This beauty, screened for me by @alanna_cavanagh in shade that nods 1st edition dustjacket, snapped for fellow Mitfordian @AlanCummingSnaps. Who wrote the intro to the recent Penguin edition + if there were ever a proper remake to rival the Judi Dench series, would make a superb Cedric. Thanks, host @nicholasme (and @suzannerogerstoronto), for introduction.

jadedjournalista Truman Capote had a gift for making female friendships, though not necessarily keeping them. Looking forward to meeting THE SWANS OF FIFTH AVENUE author w @shinangovani, re historical novel about fallout from Capote's planned roman à clef about the society swans to whom he was confidant. Capote w Jennifer Jones on location for BEAT THE DEVIL in Ravello, Italy (1953)

  •   avogoddess I love that book! So, so good. 6d
  •   jadedjournalista @avogoddess Too true that popular writers are seldom asked about the language. I like how he calls them 'us proles.' 6d
  •   janetteewen This... ️ I love the mention of the elements of style. My bible. 6d
  •   avogoddess Agreed, @jadedjournalista. Mine too, @janetteewen! It's my most critical tool. 6d
  •   scottchantler Never found King's writing advice particularly useful, but I really like the autobiographical parts of this book. And of course, he's right about Strunk & White. 6d
  •   avogoddess Maybe that's what I liked best too, @scottchandler. I found it so revealing and touching, in such stark contrast to his "usual" writing. It's been a very long time now since I read it. Also.. as the Queen of Verbosity, I could probably stand to read that chapter again (and again). Thanks for the reminder, @jadedjournalista 😬 6d

jadedjournalista Geneviève Bujold in Claude Jutra KAMOURASKA (1973). Art direction + costume design by Québec's prolific François Barbeau (also LÉOLO, Cirque, countless theatre), who has died at 80. Wish I'd made an effort to seek him out, hear his stories.

This Iceland wedding mixes wintry Norse #GameofThrones theme fancy-dress (Viking groomsmen!) and Scandelegant black tie on New Year's Eve; @moshalundstrom + @lundstromlinda graciously let #GlobeStyle inside planning the Nordic magic (article at link in profile)
[NB The people + story mustve been very special to have me waver in my usual wedding industrial complex boycott!]
