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!
