Edward Manchester comes from a long line of Manchesters that have had a hand in influencing the economic and political direction of America and Canada since the early days of both countries. His family has a history of having a hand in all kinds of popular activities, like rum-running to the Chicago area, funding both sides of the army during the US civil war, arming resistance movements in socialist or communist Latin America and printing the one and only newspaper in several Canadian towns, leading to a very controlled and myopic view of certain issues.

When Eddie returned to his desk, the file on Sasha had already arrived and was sitting in a closed package, a hermetically sealed history of his once youthful and attentive lover. It struck him that this was all that would remain of an exuberant and flamboyant person who could have done so much with himself had Eddie not ruined his life.

Kite had always imagined that the voice of the end of the world would be the rough and torn sound of Shane McGowan of the Pogues, singing about recklessness and distracting us from the true perils that surrounded us.
