Destroyer of Worlds
"The night is silver. The city a jagged black crown against a platinum sky. Sirens klaxon. Buildings topple and fall."
"She wanted to watch "The Ice Storm" and I wanted to watch "Godzilla" and I realised in that moment, we weren't going to make it."
A semi-autobiographical tale about a couple imploding, a bomb exploding and how Love sometimes makes monsters of us all.
From a suburban video shop to blinding deserts and cities razed to the ground, this is the story of an old man, a scientist and a dragon that sleeps beneath the sea.
An investigation into the ethics of autobiography, Destroyer asks, "Do we have the right to tell someone else's story? And if not, is that a good enough reason not to?"
