Wishful Wednesday (29)

wishful-wednesday1

Walau nggak menang di WW edisi giveaway minggu lalu, saya masih semangat ikut WW, mumpung lagi mood ada buku yang lagi dimupengin berat *bahasa apalagi ini* dan sebentar lagi saya ngerayain ultah, siapa tau ada yang mau kasih kado, hihihi…

Buat yang belum tau, saya penggemar berat Jane Eyre. Baru tahun lalu saya memutuskan mengoleksi edisi-edisi Jane Eyre yang collectible, dan sampai saat ini sudah 10 edisi Jane Eyre yang saya miliki. Masih butiran bedak talek, jangan bandingkan dengan koleksi Little Women Mbak Truly yang fenomenal itu.

Makanya waktu tahu buku ini akan terbit, nggak pake ba-bi-bu saya langsung masukin ke wishlist.

Sinopsis dari Goodreads:

This collection of original stories by today’s finest women writers—including Tracy Chevalier, Francine Prose, Elizabeth McCracken, Tessa Hadley, Audrey Niffenegger, and more—takes inspiration from the opening line in Charlotte Brontë’s most beloved novel, Jane Eyre.

A fixture in the literary canon, Charlotte Brontë is revered by readers all over the world. Her novels featuring unforgettable, strong heroines still resonate with millions today. And who could forget one of literature’s best-known lines: “Reader, I married him” from her classic novel Jane Eyre?

Part of a remarkable family that produced three acclaimed female writers at a time in 19th-century Britain when few women wrote, and fewer were published, Brontë has become a great source of inspiration to writers, especially women, ever since. Now in Reader, I Married Him, twenty of today’s most celebrated women authors have spun original stories, using the opening line from Jane Eyre as a springboard for their own flights of imagination.

Reader, I Married Him will feature stories by:

Tracy Chevalier
Tessa Hadley
Sarah Hall
Helen Dunmore
Kirsty Gunn
Joanna Briscoe
Jane Gardam
Emma Donoghue
Susan Hill
Francine Prose
Elif Shafak
Evie Wyld
Patricia Park
Salley Vickers
Nadifa Mohamed
Esther Freud
Linda Grant
Lionel Shriver
Audrey Niffenegger
Namwali Serpell
Elizabeth McCracken

Unique, inventive, and poignant, the stories in Reader, I Married Him pay homage to the literary genius of Charlotte Brontë, and demonstrate once again that her extraordinary vision continues to inspire readers and writers.

Pendeknya, buku ini adalah kumpulan cerpen yang terinspirasi dari Jane Eyre. Walaupun saya masih belum baca karya dari banyak penulis yang menjadi kontributor kumcer ini, paling nggak masih kenal dengan nama Tracy Chevalier lah. Semoga buku ini nggak mengecewakan :).
