oline (oh!-‘lighn): biographer. southerner. londoner. feminist.

Oline has written extensively on the subjects of celebrity, gossip, and the flow of stories through culture. She is interested in the way we have consumed and written about other people’s lives since the beginning of time, but most especially from the 1950s on. She holds a PhD from King’s College London in life-writing (ie. Jackie Onassis and celebrity). She is currently wearing color, eating cake, reading Proust, writing a biography of Jackie Onassis, and thinking about Tonya Harding, mortality, nuclear fear, and the sex lives of dead people.

This is an academic blog. Oline’s dazzling analysis and beautifully crafted sentences bring her no money. She tries to credit photographs where possible. Read the boring explanation of her tremendously exciting research HERE. Read some of her short stories HERE and HERE. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram. Listen to The Way Up!

Please, PLEASE, for the love of Lars Lindstrom, do not send her an email addressed to “Online.”

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me
    tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something
    relating to this.

  3. Wow. Fascinating.

    I looked at your graduate bio (I’m that kinda geek) and how did you decide this was what you wanted to study? I’d love to hear the reasons! 😊

    • ah, that’s delightful as i’m quite sure you’re the only person who’s ever read it!! geek power!

      the short short story is that i could never find the book about jackie that i wanted to read and so, when i had to do something for my MA, i decided to write it. which- because i was young and naive- sounded so easy. ten years later i’m still doing it and far wiser, but i think the reason stays the same.

      i’m still writing the book i wanted to read when i was 12 and first got interested in jackie. and, within doing that, i’ve stumbled across a heap of fundamental problems in the way we write women’s lives, which is probably what i’ll spend the whole rest of my life writing about!

  4. To these we might add tastes which can be also sensations, like hot, sour,
    astringent, burning, and sticky. And if the poinsettia plant dies prior to the holidays are over with,
    then you’ll probably have to acquire another one.

    Aloe Vera was popular and employed by many cultures like
    Greek, Arab, Roman and Indian Cultures to note just a couple of.

    This will be the technical name for that reed plant which Rico and Vandoren use to create their
    reeds.
