An author whose breakthrough novel proved so controversial that she was shunned by her local community has been honoured in her home village 80 years after her death.
What bullshit! You just know this is being done as part of some tourist trap thing. I bet you still can’t find the book for sale in that town — or find anyone who has read it!
If you can’t honor a writer while he or she is still living, have the dignity not to feed off their corpse later on!
