Game of Thrones: Visit the real-life kingdom of Westeros to see where violent history ends and telly tourism begins

After spending two days touring the ruggedly gorgeous locations that Northern Ireland has lent to the HBO series Game of Thrones, a view opens up that really takes my breath away. Late in the afternoon on a March day of stiff north-westerlies, sudden showers and fitful sunbursts, we stop outside Portballintrae, close to the Giant's Causeway on the North Antrim coast. On its basalt outcrop high above the waves, the turreted ruins of Dunluce Castle – or House of Greyjoy, as Game of Thrones fans will know it – look ready for their close-up.

Photographer Alex Masi's chance shot of a young girl in Bhopal transformed both of their lives

On 24 August 2009, as monsoon season arrived in central India, Alex Masi took a picture… and lives changed. He was in Bhopal, photographing a boy called Sachin Jatev, who had leg paralysis and skeletal deformity, possibly as a result of the 1984 gas leak that devastated the area. "It began to rain very hard," recalls Masi, now 34, an Italian-born, London-based photojournalist who last year also photographed the heavily polluted Bhopal region 30 years after the disaster for The New Review. "It hadn't rained for a while, so the children went a bit crazy. In that moment, I captured Sachin's younger sister Poonam refreshing in the rain. I was taking shelter under a plastic sheet and she was right in front of me. For a brief moment she took in the rain and then she realised I was taking photos and ran away."

Invisible ink no 273: Mary Elizabeth Braddon

There are authors whose lives mirror their novels, none more so than Mary Elizabeth Braddon, who was born in London’s Soho in 1835 and took to playing matronly roles on the stage, even when young, in order to support herself and her mother.

Spinster: A Life of One’s Own by Kate Bolick, book review:

In an entertaining but fundamentally unsatisfying reclamation of spinsterhood, Kate Bolick puts a stake through the heart of Bridget Jones, the singleton who wanted to be anything but.

Best running books: Whether you like a jog, a scamper, or a marathon...

Today sees both the most prestigious city marathon in the world and the biggest charity fundraiser of its type take place on the streets of London: the Virgin London Marathon. The popularity of this extraordinary event, which welcomes both the super-elite and have-a-go heroes, is reflected in the current variety of titles available to runners – whatever their level or temperament.

Xinran interview: Buy Me the Sky author on why her book is inspired by China's one-child policy

On my way to Xinran’s flat, I walk across Hyde Park on a spring day. Tourists from all over the world are pootling about, walking and cycling in the sun. If Xinran were here, I think, she’d somehow end up learning all their life stories between one side of the park and the other.

Romantic Outlaws by Charlotte Gordon, book review: Rational creatures

There is, admits Charlotte Gordon, no shortage of biographies about the English feminist philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft or her daughter, Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. Gordon takes a fresh approach, chronologically comparing and contrasting the women’s fortunes from birth to death. In alternate chapters she explores their influences, writing, and unconventional relationships in forensic detail. Gordon portrays Wollstonecraft and Shelley as clever, courageous women who constantly strove to live life on their own terms.
