Men of our Times. “A city is like a human body. You know a person can be killed by a few tiny bacteria? So can a city. The city is London, and you are the bacteria. You will kill London.”

Lucky Dip. Trevor Liddle plays a fairground game, the context of which will define the rest of his life. This will transpire to be a life of quiet, inescapable horror.
