The twin themes of domestic adventure and dreams work together in Every Night of Our Lives to create a tactile and brightly-coloured odyssey of the mundane. At times harrowing and sombre and at other times humorous and bizarre, Every Night provides a meaningful account of middle-aged life in the new millennium. It begins with an atmosphere of lingering restlessness, but gradually turns towards reflections of a first time father settling down in a era of pop culture and high speed internet, as he comes to terms with his own mortality, personal flaws and limitations.
I escape the bear in the hall to be trapped by wolves in the den. I leave, years pass, but no one holds a grudge like a childhood home.
