  • Photo and quote from author Astrid Lindgren's website:
    "The Lemonade Tree in the Villa Villekulla garden – the one with the hollow trunk where Pippi, Tommy and Annika found lemonade – was one of the ancient elm trees which are still there at Näs."

    While trees deserve love every single day of the year, today we’re taking time out to appreciate some of the most famous and memorable trees of pop culture and the literary world. While there are plenty of trees throughout literature (and not just because, you know, books are made of trees), these are some of our favorites.

  • This month sees Nicholas Hoult appearing on the big screen as the legendary fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien in the biographical film Tolkien. From the author’s childhood through his time in the war, from his creative passions to his loves, Tolkien promises to be a phenomenal look at the man behind The Lord of the Rings. However, it’s far from the first time that Hoult has starred in a film that is either an adaptation of literature or a portrayal of a literary great. In honor of his latest, we take a look at some of his biggest and best literary roles—and some yet to come.

  • It’s John Wick’s underworld. We’re just living in it.

    For now.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum comes out today, starring Keanu Reeves as everyone’s favorite heartbroken killer of killers (and the bespoke suit game). Quirk authors Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris took a break from writing For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves (out Nov 5) to create this quiz for you to take during your downtime at The Continental.

  • Killing Eve is back and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Not only is it created by our favorite Fleabag Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the show stars one of our favorite -- and most under cast -- actors of all time: Sandra Oh. We would watch her read the phone book.

  • BOOK Home Alone 2

    The beloved sequel to Home Alone is now a Pop Classics picture book, complete with iconic moments captured in Kim Smith's colorful and adorable illustrations.

  • The end draws nigh. After a decade of action packed adventure, the Infinity Saga is coming to its conclusion this month with the release of Avengers: Endgame. It has been a long and winding road to the final battle between the original six Avengers and Thanos, the being who has been pulling the strings on the world’s greatest heroes, but after 22 movies, the time has finally come to bring a close to things. As the original Avengers prepare to pass the torch of Earth’s defenders, they are going to need an exit plan for what to do in their golden years. With that in mind, we at Quirk are offering up some post superhero life plans.
