BOOKS: "Treasure Island", "The Lady And The Unicorn" and "The Girl
With A Pearl Earring" by Tracy Chevaliers, anything by Cormac
McCarthy, "Cat's Cradle", "The Jaguar Princess" by Clare Bell (this
one has a shitty title but a freaking incredible story). I also

Gregson-Williams, Alexandre Desplat, Ennio Morricone, Marco
