Happy Monday/Tuesday! There were lots of interesting stories on the Internet over the past few days. Here’s a little round-up of my favorites — lovely, strange, bitter and beautiful:

A Brooklyn couple turns their house into a haven for cool flea-market finds.

William Styron’s Darkness Visible — a memoir on depression — remains, two decades on,
a beacon of hope.

Alice Walker’s daughter is carrying around a lot of bitterness towards her mum.

A treasure trove of royal wedding memorabilia. (Is it really next month?)

Charlie Sheen’s sad, strange poetry.

    I've just clicked on the link and read Alice Walker's daughter's piece. Wow…disturbing, really. A really great read!

    Love the photos from the first link! So much fun!

    Loved the house and also read the Alice Walker article, how awful for her daughter. I liked one of Sheen's poems (the 2nd one) and absolutely love the illustration by Samuel Castano – thanks for sharing these great links!

    Thanks for the links. I'll just say about Rebecca Walker that she's been living off of this for a long time. I don't like how articles & radio programs who have her on do not try to find out any other side. I tend, in cases like this, to want to know a bit more.

    Anyway, Styron's book was a huge deal for lots of us & I cannot believe it's been 20 years. (It was also serialized in The New Yorker.)

    Great illustration.

    Can't wait for the royal wedding, Tina!
    The recent Galliano news was shocking I must say!
