Only time will tell, of course, but it is already safe to say that “Greater Clements” is one of the finest American domestic dramas of the century to date, an intimate tragedy (thảm họa, thảm kịch) with wider social implications whose six principal characters come to grief when their little lives run aground on the unforgiving shoals of economic change.

Some love stories come to grief. This is a grief story that comes to love. It begins three years ago, Dec. 15, 2016, with a knock at the door of the Faqiri family residence in Ajax, Ont. The door opened. A police officer stepped forward. Their son and brother, Soleiman Faqiri, was dead, the officer said. He had died in a cell at Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay, Ont. The officer couldn’t say anything more.

My letter discussed the matter without reference (sự đối chiếu, tương xứng) to any political party or individual. Mr Salmond and Ms Sturgeon, like me, are mere messengers. Mr Salmond has already left the stage, Ms Sturgeon may follow before she is much older, and I have no ambition to appear on it. If all three of us were to come to grief tomorrow, together with the SNP, the independence issue would still be there the next day.
