The Rabbit Dreams of Dr. Freud's Niece
- An illustrator of children's books, Sigmund Freud's niece Martha went by the name Tom, wore men's clothing, and died by her own hand in her late 30s, a year after her husband's suicide. BibliOdyssey recently featured some of her early work from Das Baby-Liederbuch
, noting that because she was Jewish, many of her books were destroyed in the Nazi era and are scarce in the book trade. More about the artist and her work at Tom Seidmann-Freud

Since 1999, The Language of Lagomorphs
has been the foremost resource on the web for information about the body language of domestic rabbits. "It's been pretty amazing to see how many people, even those who live with rabbits, are outright shocked at just how communicative they really are once you learn to notice. The contrast between this reality and the popular misconception that rabbits 'just sit there' could not be greater." [more inside]

"When I read his work, I forgive him all his sins".
Edmund Wilson disliked being called a critic
. He thought of himself as a journalist, and nearly all his work was done for commercial magazines
, principally Vanity Fair, in the nineteen-twenties; The New Republic, in the nineteen-twenties and thirties; The New Yorker, beginning in the nineteen-forties
; and The New York Review of Books, in the nineteen-sixties. He was exceptionally well read
: he had had a first-class education in English, French, and Italian literature, and he kept adding languages all his life
. He learned to read German, Russian, and Hebrew; when he died, in 1972, he was working on Hungarian.
