Happy Friday, Cobblers!
Since this text is extremely popular, I had imagined that I’d be loaded down with links to filter through; however, I had to search for multiple days, and luckily, I found two really interesting pieces for us.
Links, Links, Links
An extended biography from Bloom: “Gaston Leroux: A Man of Heaven and Earth.” This is a beautifully written article, so I urge you to check it out. Here’s an excerpt: “And so Gaston Leroux became a roving investigative reporter, charged with ferreting out the story others couldn’t get. He journeyed from hot spot to hot spot, from one dangerous situation to another—a life of constant adventure that would have made Sir Richard Francis Burton envious, if only there had been more sex in it.”
Lastly, a critical review/analysis from Striped Penguin: “Gaston Leroux’s Melodramatic Phantom of the Opera.”
Enjoy your weekend, Cobblers!
