Fire away. That is an ecumenical matter.
After finding out about Marina Amaral’s work on Twitter I decided to buy the book.
However; before I even opened the book, I noticed a lovely design touch with the dustcover - high gloss paper with matt typesetting
The Folio Society’s lovely illustrated version
Anyone read this?
Brutal, shocking, inspirational…
I heard him on Desert Island Discs a while back, he’s simply an amazing person. And not afraid to discuss his mental health issues that were probably both cause and consequence of his work.
How anyone copes with seeing the things he has seen and with what man can do to other men, women & children, I dont know.
Its a grim read, but what he does, the legacy he leaves behind and the Trust he & his wife have set up is inspirational.
It is an excellent read. I finished it last week. My only criticism would be that it is short on technical detail and long on personal interactions. The former is a weakness but the latter is the strength of the book.
If you’ve ever watched the Montreal episode of Anthony Bourdain’s travel series, you’ll have encountered the authors of this one.
I bet a lot of that has been updated since I read the original version with the silver cover.
I remember getting through the first two chapters thinking, “yeah, this is OK.”, then it seemed like 40 odd pages had been ripped out of my copy.
The rest gave me a terrible headache and sense of inadequacy.
You just look at pictures of black holes and masturbate don’t you?
You clearly have access to my browsing history.
Just experience of living on me own. Most things are a good reason for a wank.
Not really allowed to do it as much as I would like now. Sometimes I miss being a wanker.
Don’t worry Mark, you’ll always be a massive wanker as far as we are all concerned.
