Our bookish news feed recently featured a few interviews, plus one review, of or about women who made a literary splash.

For the latter, we have NPR's Maureen Corrigan praising the new collection The Letters of Emily Dickinson, edited by Cristanne Miller and Domhnall Mitchell, as the closest we'll ever come to having an autobiography of the great American poet.

For the former, we have another groundbreaking woman, albeit one who stuck with nonfiction; NPR's Tonya Mosley interviewed Susan Page about her new book, The Rulebreaker: The Life and Times of Barbara Walters.

Philippa Langley, meanwhile, literally broke ground (or had it broken) in her successful unearthing of Richard III's remains; The New York Times recently profiled her in connection with her late 2023 book, The Princes in the Tower, which aims to exonerate the maligned king of the murder of his two young nephews.

And finally, on a lighter note, the Guardian spoke with author Robinne Lee about the journey of writing a steamy age-gap romance as a first-time author, as the film adaptation of The Idea of You nears its premiere date.
