  • Martin Turnell - British literary critic, author of well regarded works on French literature including 'The Art of French Fiction', 'The Novel in France', 'Jean Racine, Dramatist', 'Baudelaire'. He contributed to Scrutiny, to the NY Review of Books and to the Spectator between about 1930 and the early 1960s. He worked for the BBC for about 10 years. But there is, very oddly, no biographical information anywhere about him. His books, where there is normally some brief account to be found, give nothing, not even a date of birth. I don't know how one would go about getting any information - there must still be people alive who knew him, maybe his publisher would be a way in? I don't know if he is still alive. If so, he will be of very advanced age. He was. probably still is, a significant and influential critic for a generation of English readers. He brought to the French tradition the spirit of English criticism of the day, always focused on evaluation, close reading, and a humane accurate and balanced sensibility.

  • It's Time to Fight Dirty by Roosevelt University professor David Faris (2018), ISBN 978-1-6121-9695-4 - Author argues the Republican Party has taken control of the US by fighting dirty and that the Democratic Party only can regain power by doing the same. Faris says DEMs in general and progressives in particular have been left at an unfair disadvantage. He argues they can level the playing field by various means, such as admitting new blue states (splitting California and giving statehood to DC and Puerto Rico), switching the House to IRV, and packing the Supreme Court. Some of this has seen increased discussion given the 2020 elections resulted in a DEM trifecta which might carry out some of this. Author might also be notable enough for an article.
