“The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue”

“The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue”

I have just finished reading perhaps the greatest young adult novel ever written; at the very least, it is the greatest one my eyes and imagination have traversed. Even after completing the book, remembered waves crest in my mind’s eye, carrying a load heavier than the ships described in this novel. Flashes of banditry overtake […]
