Timely, provocative, and haunting. This book successfully depicts the political turmoil of the past decade. While it often evokes Kafka and Vonnegut, Gilvarry makes sure never to lull you into believing that his work is fictitious.

Boyet Hernandez, fashion terrorist, wakes up in No Man's Land and ponders the significance of thought thoughts and worthless confessions. Reminds me of Kafka's The Trial paired with the stark, gritty humanism of Yasmina Khadra's fundamentalist novels. Phenomenal piece of literature.
