I was born in Ortona near Pescara, on Italy’s Adriatic coast, and I moved to London in 2000 for my postgraduate studies. I completed my PhD in Italian Studies, with a thesis on postmodernity and intertextuality in the work of the Italian writer Pier Vittorio Tondelli, at UCL in 2007 and I hold an MA in History of Film and Visual Media from Birkbeck College London.
I have always loved film and comics, and my teaching and research interests are now entirely focused on the areas of Film Studies and Sequential Art.

Leave it to the fabulous Tamara Allen to grip me with a novel focusing on the depreciation of silver towards the end of the 19th century's in the United States.

"I think this is Tamara Allen's best book to date - and what's even better - it's the start of a series!

Once again I'm tired (because I write all my reviews before I go to bed), so I'll keep it short and sweet.

This is a well-written and tightly-plotte" Read more of this review »

“I wondered at him, so wise and so foolish, to have lived with me all these months and not know that the worst storms break inside a man.”

“I followed him up the stairs. I was a fornicator, of unnatural appetite, in thrall to an Atheist. I repeated the words in my head and tried to feel the shock of them, but they remained strange and cruel, far removed from Ferris and me. It was simpler to say I was in love.”

“Why did You bid me drown the letter? I have lost something that he touched, and the destruction of it has gained You nothing, for now I no longer read the words, I hear them, as if he implored me face to face. Speak to me, Jacob, do not play the tyrant. Speak to me.”

“Sin is our condition," I said.
"Say rather that love is our rightful condition."
"You talk like--you are a good man! But how can you be good without God?"
He grinned. "Not so good, neither. But what virtue I do have is in me and of me. Men deny the good that comes from themselves, calling it God. So they do with their own evil, calling it the Devil."
I tried to see how this might be.
"There is no Hell, Jacob."
"And the Bible?"
"Was written by men like ourselves."
He was frightening. At the idea of there being no Hell I had felt a breath of something like freedom, but it was illusion. I marvelled at his foolhardiness, feared it, and loved it.”
