* Clara Schumann has been regarded by history - if at all - as a classical music groupie. However Clara was a prodigy on the piano, her career restricted by temperament, society and the demands of two powerful and difficult men: her father and husband Robert, who suffered from serious mental illness throughout their marriage. Her career is re-assesed in the new novel by Janice Galloway.

  Janice Galloway's novel Clara is published by Cape as a paperback original.

* Julie Burchill is about to be played on stage by the comedienne Jackie Clune in a play about the controversial writer's life and work, Julie Burchill Is Away. Julie Burchill and Jackie Clune discuss art imitating life.

  Julie Burchill Is Away is written by Tim Fountain and is at The Soho Theatre in London until 13th July.

* You'd think that companies might be wary of rebranding after the derision which greeted Consignia. But accountancy firm Price-WaterhouseCoopers has revealed that in future they'll be called Monday. According to their research the name summons up images of "fresh thinking, doughnuts and hot coffee." Headline writers have inevitably invoked the Boomtown Rats, but in pop music no one likes Mondays.
