Purefinder is about so much more than 1858.
To name but a few, it’s an examination of the relationships between the Victorian era and now, the high end and the low end of the class system in the West, and – importantly for the coming weekend – the relationships between men.
At the core of our protagonist’s thought processes throughout the day of Purefinder is an examination of his relationship with his father.
All of that and, yes, a great big bag of scares, sewers, and slimy types in 1858.
Go on, give him a pure find.
