Cartoon of the Week: Busy Work





Last week, in A Figure from the Common Lot, Honoré’s narrative ended; this week, his cousin Élucide’s began, with a half-dreaming series of memories. Monday, a new episode of The German Spy, in which Agnes tells Fiona how Atherleigh rigged the explosion. On Tuesday, Haunt of Thieves began a fresh run; Wednesday, Sequence of Events continued, with Freda’s adventure, catching Boardman on film and off his guard, for a reason Bruner doesn’t know, either. Thursday, La Catastrophe de la Martinique offered two stories about ship captains and their escapes. Friday, a new poem, “The Lengthy Story”, and Saturday, the latest Hammersmith, “Boxed Goods”, in which Vic finds himself harried along a dubious course.
Images on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
