This episode of Life Stories, offers a slight change of pace, as Rebecca Mead’s My Life in Middlemarch is more than a memoir. In addition to discussing what she’s taken from her various readings of George Eliot’s novel over the course of her adult life, Mead also offers a biographical appreciation of Eliot and a touch of literary criticism. It’s still a profoundly personal book, though, and that comes through in our conversation—highlights of which you can read at Buzzfeed Books.
(If you do mention this episode to friends, be sure to send them the Buzzfeed link; the more traffic they see, the more episodes they’re likely to sponsor… which works out great for all of us!)
