“What’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It’s – it was like – we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment.” Former CIA Director Mike […]

LIVE AND DEADLY

Source: Review copy Publication: 18th April 2019 from Michael Joseph PP: 352 ISBN-13: 978-0241362853 Emily Maitlis has a really uplifting writing style which makes this book a joy to read. Coupled with a sense of self-doubt and a humour that is sometimes wry and which she occasionally turns on herself, this makes Airhead a delightful […]

Descender #7 by Jeff Lemire My rating: 5 of 5 stars Well, we are off to a slightly violent start… Artwork… I really like that I can see the paper texture. The look is so different from what I usually read. It’s so cute that Tim-21 behaves like an actual child, pout and all! Really […]

Faith No More. One of my personal favourite bands. There’s a lot I could say about this subject as I’ve listened to their albums hundreds of thousands of times and still find new things to love! Whether it be with Patton or Mosley at the mic, this band never fails to make me bang my […]

Finding the Good Life

Money, and how dangerous it can be in a control and coercion situation. On the day of my wedding, my ex said to a family friend “after today I’m sorted for life, I never have to worry about money again”, or something to that effect. I am in no doubt that I was ‘had’, and […]

“The final scene in Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, depicting an unhinged Slim Pickens ‘riding the bomb’, is a fitting metaphor for Kobek – laughing all the way to annihilation. Compared to his previous novels though, the humour is darker, some riffs and tangents ‘heavy’. For the author, the election of Trump seems to have been one insult too far. And despite seeming not to care about the story, of playing fast and loose with his own narrative, that’s a façade – Kobek is a genius, masquerading as a slob. From Batman fanboys to Instagram to Literary Death Match to sex –the honesty, accuracy and comic genius on display, stops the reader dead.” – Tamim Sadikali reviews Only Americans Burn In Hell by Jarett Kobek
