The Two Matts

The year so far (Spoiler alert: It’s worse than we could imagine)

How time flies when the world is on fire… a quarter of 2024 has already passed so the Matts check global progress against their expectations at New Year. It’s a grim reality check as Gaza and Ukraine go from bad to worse and Trump appears to be gaining ground on the White House. On the upside, there’ve been a bunch of cultural highlights to provide welcome distraction – not least the publication this week of Caledonian Road by Andrew O’Hagan. “It’s like Bonfire Of the Vanities… but better” says Matthew d’Ancona. Enjoy!
