The Criticess was born out of a desire to steal female writers, labelled classics andconsigned to the doldrums of academia, and to explore them in all their unhinged, electrifying, mischievous, eloquent, mistressful glory. For a time, she wrote for the Edinburgh literary publication, The One O’Clock Gun, and now she is here, bringing to The Fine Line those women and works too vital to grow old on dusty bookshelves.
