Get another lawyer

“Every frame in this house is created to make you look your best”, says Gail Wynand to Dominique Francon, characters in the novel Fountainhead. “I didn’t know about your interest in literary fiction.” “Nor did I, but I quote this today to reject the agreement draft.

Kitsch

I am the first to see his secret chamber - art created, never sold. “Where does the money come from?” I’m curious. “I migrated to the city in search of a living, to keep body and soul together. Anna invited me to see a certain spot in the city. The Queen of Kitsch had just … Continue reading Kitsch
