Today I clicked, read, watched... 28/8/13



Read... Marisha Pessl's Night Film ,  review on Bazaar on Books tomorrow. Clicked... on this rage-inducing news story about Stacey Dean Rambold, a 49-year-old Montana teacher convicted of raping a 14-year-old student who subsequently killed herself. His sentence? 30 days in jail (15 years suspended "all but 31 days, with a day's credit for 'time served'."). According to Judge G Todd Baugh, "It's not probably the kind of rape most people think about...not a violent, forcible, beat-the-victim rape, like you see in the movies." Oh, that's all right then. Downloaded... the survey for Women in Clothes. The fascinating new book project from Leanne Shapton and Sheila Heti about what women wear and why. More information at www.womeninclothes.com.  Downloaded... the podcast of Julie Goodyear's Desert Island Discs as recommended by Lauren Laverne. "I've led a leopard print kind of life."
