´Do you hate me? Let me feel your anger.´
No, he vowed. Not now. But some day.
This is the promise he makes, the descendant of Grandma Raveface and Shovel Jack. Hatred will sustain him. Anger. His own and that of others.
And where better to tap that anger than among the dissatisfied souls of the inner city, the desperate and the disenfranchised.
They are ripe to feed Raveface´s anger, and to be fed off in return.
Pictures of Lily
Nicola´s is a happy life, a cosy world, her parents see that she wants for nothing. She has all the benefits a middle class background affords -a good education, a comfortable home, a promising future- and her days flow seamlessly, one into the other, with never a problem to trouble their calm progression... until she meets Johnson.
A Lady of Perdida
The people of Perdida live in a peculiar limbo, their village lost somewhere on the border between Portugal and Spain. As insular as they are isolated, their church has no regular priest. Instead they must rely on the infrequent visits of a man on a donkey to bless their marriages, baptise their children, bury their dead and hear their confessions. When the peripatetic priest announces that this will be his last visit, however, that he has suffered a loss of faith, the people of the village are thrown into a panic. How can they ever sin again -the indolent cork cutter and the drunken fisherman, the maker of the copulating clocks and the ladies of the brothel- if there can be no absolution? And what miracles can they conjure which might restore the fallen priest´s faith? What temptations can they put in his way to persuade him to stay with them?
