  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “What Emma Donoghue’s pandemic novel ‘The Pull of the Stars’ can teach us” – below is their description.

    Her new novel features face masks, people cowering from public coughing and signs warning others to wash their hands. It all sounds eerily familiar; the Irish-Canadian author Emma Donoghue tells us more about the spooky coincidence at the heart of her latest book. We also take a look at a collection of clothes that tell the subversive story of punk rock’s queen of fashion, Vivienne Westwood. And we hear from painter Chéri Samba, as the Congolese art star explains how he found inspiration during lockdown in Paris.
