Black Card

In Owen Sheers’ chilling novel, I Saw a Man, Michael Turner tries to cope with one tragedy only to cause a second that eclipses the first.  He turns to the art of fencing - something he’d done as a student - for the distraction it provides.  In a fencing competition, a Black Card indicates a penalty so severe that the offender is immediately expelled.  En garde.  Drinks with Nick
