Book shelves with biographiesThis week we’ve been adding to our biographies and graphic novels. We’ve had a number of student requests to increase the choice of biographies and reflect the lives of women in other countries and cultures. As a result we ordered in a number of biographies of Chinese and black women:

Falling Leaves Return to their Roots:  the True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah

Samantha Tross: a Profile by Verna Wilkins

Baroness Scotland of Asthal by Sue Adler

and other biographies of musicians and singers as well as a former Member of Parliament:

Amy Winehouse – the Biography, 1983-2011 by Chas Newkey-Burden

Nancy The Story of Lady Astor by Adrian Fort

The Shaking Woman, or, a History of My Nerves by Siri Hustvedt

Under the Ivy: the Life and Music of Kate Bush by Graeme Thomson

plus two graphic novels:

Blue is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh

Palestine by Joe Sacco
