The genius of William Boyd

I am working my way through the works of William Boyd, I was hooked after Any Human Heart and am avidly reading the rest.

Any human heart: the actors who play Logan Mountstuart

Almost as good as the book is this excellent adaptation of Any Human Heart done by Channel 4.

He is very good at making you reflect on your own actions and seeing how small and inconsequential meetings or events can have big repercussions, which is nicely summed up by this quote from Waiting for Sunrise “Fucking consequences. Again”

It’s Newton’s third law for the 21st century.
