Thanks for this article! I'd never before heard of Ursula Nordstrom.
Then again, I was one of those people who thought Edward Gorey was dead until the New Yorker article.
@jfruh To be fair, she might have been an artist. She refused to identify her medium. She did, however, tell me about rupturing an uppity prisoner's spleen with her billy-club, so perhaps her art was sadism. I didn't stick around to find out.
I really, really wanted to like Albert Nobbs, but alas! it was a pretty disappointing film. McTeer was good, but the idea that she was passing for a guy stretched credulity.
This definitely had me wondering if I was reading a parallel word narrative, or if I was going mad (RE Shaw v. Thaw).
I'd put Tristan Smith, Bliss, and Jack Maggs higher up, but it's a fine list.
Don't get me started on "Black Tie" becoming a synonym for "ultra-formal" -- I mean, what happened to "White Tie" formality?
Please tell me I'm not the only one who picked up the TLOG reference: "Legs Akimbo Theatre Company"
Maybe this will help us find who carved the huge letters "CHA" into it.
I find a "Consider..." or "Notwithstanding..." or even a breathy "Yea! For it shall come to pass that ..." always seems to charm.
