Sexual freedom is most often associated with the city, but a small but growing canon including EM Forster and Sarah Waters tells a different story If the countryside appears at all in LGBT+ stories, it is usually only as somewhere to escape from. For many of us, this is a pattern that never fitted, and though we did the urban thing to burst (or tiptoe) from the closet, the lure of the rural soon overwhelmed the anonymity of the city. It didn’t feel like a choice, but something intrinsic that would have been dangerous to resist, like the act of coming out itself. So it was for

Did ‘community’ in postwar England correspond to the cliches? Or was it continually remade, and shaped by ambition as well as solidarity? Remember when everyone left doors unlocked and borrowed cups of sugar? No? Then this richly researched history of community may well appeal. Jon Lawrence uncovers the reality behind romantic cliches of our postwar past. He convincingly suggests that the real history of community is one in which people have combined solidarity with self-reliance and privacy. This isn’t a new conclusion, as Lawrence acknowledges – his copious notes are a valuable guide for anyone interested in the social histories he draws on. But

Earlier this year, HBO’s president, Casey Bloys, said that the prospect of a third season was “not realistic”. “I love this group of people – I would do anything with them,” Bloys told TV Line. “But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood.” He may be bluffing.

Move over, Phoebe – there’s a new queen of confessional comedy. Prepare for an offbeat world of tiny Dolly Partons and cats who eat kebabs Roisin Conaty still remembers her first night of standup. It was 2010 and she was at the King’s Head pub in London’s Crouch End, tipsy and being egged on by a friend. Conaty put her name down for the try-out comedy show, then forgot all about it. When they called to tell her it was her turn, she showed up with nothing prepared. “I thought you made it up on the night,” she says, eyes widening. “I now look back and think, ‘What’s wrong with you?’” She wasn’t even an avid comedy fan. “I’d seen Richard Pryor and Joan Rivers, the stuff off the telly. I don’t think I’d seen anything live before I did a gig, which is weird.” The way Conaty tells it, she seems to be marvelling at the antics of someone else, not looking back at her own history. But the bug bit that night. “It was like love at first sight,” she says. “It felt frightening and it mattered immediately.”

The Truce: how Primo Levi rediscovered humanity after Auschwitz34h The Truce: how Primo Levi rediscovered humanity after Auschwitz
Shadows from the horrors told in If This Is a Man remain, but this book shows the author finding joy in ordinary life “Nothing belongs to us any more; they have taken away our clothes, our shoes, even our hair; if we speak, they will not listen to us, and if they listen, they will not understand. They will even take away our name: and if we want to keep it, we will have to find our strength to do so, to manage somehow so that behind the name something of us, of us as we were, still remains.” So Primo Levi describes the beginning of the process of “the demolition of a man”, the “offence” that Auschwitz inflicted on so many people. “Häftling,” he writes in If This Is a Man, using the German word for prisoner, “I have learned that I am a Häftling. My name is 174517.”
