Real art is dense and difficult. If it didn't feel like you had to wrestle a suicidal bear to get through it, you weren't really reading.

Description[edit | edit source]

The cover features a row of concrete buildings with a monochrome rainbow in the sky. It tells a rather excruciating story about two lovers during an ethnic unrest in Yugo-Graad. The book has been filed under psychological realism. Written by by Yekartina Dahl, this nearly 600 page book of thin pages with small and tightly set letters, focuses on the Yugo-Graad riots in cold, detached prose. One memorable scene has youths overturn motor carriages and set trash cans ablaze while heavily armoured guardsmen dash in and disperse them in a flurry of baton blows... In excruciating detail, the author describes the socio-economic conditions that have brought the people of Yugo-Graad into the streets...

The Yugo-Graad Riots took place from TK to TK, fueled by ethnic unrest and the state's repressive tactics. These events are often seen as marking the end of a brief period of liberalization known as the Yugo-Graad Spring. Like all such periods, it is frequently memorialised in art and literature.

The author's photograph is on the back cover. She can't be much older than her mid-30s in this photograph, and yet from this cover the eyes of a sad, old woman stares back at Harrier.
