I don't really agree with

Posted on Mon, 06 Jun 2016

Explosive ending - oh no, not

Explosive ending - oh no, not Marc!  You capture the grubbiness and seediness of power play, and the sadness of the individual lives destroyed on all sides.  This has been a really gripping and enjoyable story.

You tell that Freddy where to go.

 ​I loved the description of your childhood efforts to stay awake, and the skilful way you marry them up with your present situation.  I hope you had a great day at the ballpark.

The strands all coming
