Seven Seasons of Midnights at the Most Successful Bank in the Universe
Midnight in the City of London. The Masters of Finance rule the world. Small creatures run for cover.

It took me a while to […] Continue reading
A modern-day Boschesque purgatory “Rather than relying on major dramatic moments to carry across the power of the story, it’s the death of a thousand cuts: a steady, minute chipping away of sensitivities, of sensibilities, of defences, of any sense of normality, together with the pathetic gratitude of finally winning horribly minor victories that make […] Continue reading
