Lily Allen, No Shame album review: Back and better than ever36m Lily Allen, No Shame album review: Back and better than ever
The Independent
Allen never overdramatises the already-dramatic – divorce, children, a stalker, media intrusion – rather she tackles it in an offhand and always bluntly honest manner

20h What if women were told the truth? A mother who was not ready for motherhood chronicles the blood, sweat and tears of having a baby
The Guardian
What if women were told the truth? Meaghan O’Connell chronicles the blood, sweat and tears of having a baby Lately I’ve found I gobble up birth stories. I read them all. As I don’t have children, nor do I seem to want them, perhaps my curiosity has to do with how little I know about this common, pivotal experience. We’ve each been formed, grown in, and either pushed or pulled from a woman’s body, yet for most of my life I’ve learned less about childbirth than I have about, for example, the intricacies of trench warfare. Should nothing but stories concerning pregnancy and early motherhood be published for the next 10 years, it would hardly redress the vast historical imbalance between what humans experience and what has been judged worth documenting. More English language literature has probably been written about medieval jousting than about childbirth. This lack is yet another of patriarchy’s gifts. But I’m in luck: there has been an upsurge of books that focus on motherhood, and this memoir is a vivid, though often harrowing example of the genre. Meaghan O’Connell became pregnant at 29, sooner than she had planned; though anxious about the timing, she and her boyfriend, Dustin, elected not to have an abortion.

The soprano fills in the missing history of western classical music, and treats the viewer to some spine-tingling renditions of Hildegard of Bingen and Francesca Caccini I think I know this one, the story of the great composers of western classical music. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, etc. Sure enough, we begin with the reassuring, macho intro of Beethoven’s Fifth: da-da-da-DUM. But that’s enough of him, fade out Beethoven. The soprano
