Poetry. Invokes a narrative and intimate distance through the imbalance of power between men and detectives and women and wives, leaving a risky proposition like an alphabet or the simple complexity of memoir and writing about memory. A sobering examination of the ultimate spy-styled popular thriller, a nuanced deconstruction of model masculinity in mass culture. [BOND, JAMES]: alphabet, anatomy, [auto]biography
