This week’s Thursday Album is Cat Power’s The Greatest. I hope you enjoy it 🙂 This isn’t the kind of music I usually listen to and I guess it’s not particularly odd either, but I like it! The Greatest is the seventh studio album by indie rock artist Chan Marshall, a.k.a. Cat Power. It debuted…
In One for the Birds (2016), Lily Mitchell gives you surrealism, betrayal and some macabre situations in which the main characters find themselves lost or trapped. But that’s not all. Here and there a main character learns valuable life lessons a little too late. Besides death and suspense you’ll find a good dose of sarcasm. These short stories are an easy read and very variable. If you're particularly fond of scary stories, you won’t want to miss out on these.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman succeeded in writing feminist stories that liberated both men and women. This is particularly the case in the last story Mr. Peebles' Heart, where a successful female doctor manages to persuade her sister's husband to follow his dreams, not to save their marriage, but to save each of their lives, their sanity and wellbeing. I also really enjoyed Making A Change, where a man must come to terms with the fact that his mother and his wife have colluded to create his comfortable life.

Not just an ancient Mayan Goddess of suicide, IX Tab is also the name of the creators of the creepiest music I've ever heard. I highly recommend them.
