"Leonora Carrington ran off with Max Ernst, hung out with Picasso, fled the Nazis and escaped from a psychiatric hospital. Joanna Moorhead travels to Mexico to track down her long-lost cousin, one of Britain's finest - and neglected - surrealists." Read the Guardian article by Moorhead here.
Corinne Bailey Rae is a young English singer/songwriter with a lovely, soulful sound. She's also only the fourth female British act in history to have her first album debut at number one. Highly recommended. Check out the interview with her on the Guardian website (Burt Bacharach is a huge fan), as well as her own beautifully designed website, where you can listen to tracks from her album.
