As usual Bozza is able to give a different perspective. Her worldview is particular and a worldview I like to visit.

Rather we have a story cleaned and refined down to people involved, idealistic Joshua and the realist Angelo. Angelo who gets hope for redemption from the faith of Joshua and acts upon it right on till the end.

Delany considers that if the way things ought to be differ from the way they are, they must be brought into alignment
