Agencies – Sudan Events

It has been a busy year for bookworms. In 2023, literary heavyweights Bret Easton Ellis, Salman Rushdie, Margaret Attwood and Zadie Smith returned to the scene and published new work, in some cases, for the first time in over a decade.
According to CNN ,the summer, authors such as Eliza Clark, Pip Finkemeyer and Rachel Connolly helped usher in an epidemic of ‘Sad Girl’ literature — the melancholic millennial female experience often categorized by trauma and dysfunction.
New voices entered the mix, or at least there was new recognition for storied writers. Norwegian author Jon Fosse won the Nobel Prize for the first time in October, praised by judges for “giving voice to the unsayable.”
This year, we also lost industry legends Martin Amis, Cormac McCarthy and Louise Glück, who were among the authors that died in the last 12 months.
Pop culture and literature have never felt closer, too, than in 2023.
Vulnerable celebrity memoirs from Pamela Anderson, Eliot Page and Julia Fox were among some of the most talked-about releases of the year.
However, 2023 was bookended by two highly anticipated autobiographies in particular: In January, “Spare,” Prince Harry’s salacious tell-all memoir of life as a British royal was published, and Britney Spears’ breakdown of her strict, 13-year-long conservatorship “The Woman in Me,” was released in October.
