Meryl Streep receiving IU Honorario Grado, 2014 ( )

It’s Zed’s. / "Pussy Wagon"? Fucker.

I don’t do too much talking these days

The scene in which I confess to them is invented, imagined. And, in fact, could never have happened… .because Robbie Turner died of septicaemia at Bray Dunes on the first of June 1940, the last day of the evacuation…and I was never able to put things right with my sister Cecilia….because she was killed on the 15th of October, 1940 by the bomb that destroyed the gas and water mains above Balham tube station.
