As the crow flies – by Jeffrey Archer – Book Review

Marvel at one of the world’s most dynamic modern art spaces, Tate Modern, and its new extension

Tate Modern is an amazing story of redemption and reinvention. It resides Picasso to Anish Kapoor and Tacita Dean – you name ’em, they’ve got ’em.

The moneyContinue reading “WTF did I just watch? Starring Kit Harrington in Doctor Faustus”
