Ce again and the niche awaits a new trophyTundj Hata the imperial courier is charged with transporting heads to the capital – a task he relishes and performs with fervour But as he travels through obscure and impoverished territories he makes money from illicit side shows offering villagers. I did not expect to really enjoy a book about a niche in a wall in Constantinople where the heads of traitors are put on display and carefully tended Also surprising is that this book was written 40 years ago because it feels very current Unfortunately powerful regimes stopping at nothing to silence those who rebel against them is still relevant The real strength of this book to me is that it is both meaningful cleverly written The writing is beautiful The story is set in the winter of the 1800s The February wind whistled in a thousand languages across the plain darkened by winter and war It is February in all the infinite lands of the empire he groaned to himself Why should he think there might be a fragment of March somewhere or even a scrap of April A little March for the empire s chosen sons he thought But it was February for everyoneWhether it makes the official MBI shortlist or not I expect it will be on my own personal shortlist All Night Long (Nannies, put on display and carefully tended Also surprising is that this book was written 40 years ago because it feels very current Unfortunately The Freeze-Frame Revolution plain darkened by winter and war It is February in all the infinite lands of the empire he groaned to himself Why should he think there might be a fragment of March somewhere or even a scrap of April A little March for the empire s chosen sons he thought But it was February for everyoneWhether it makes the official MBI shortlist or not I expect it will be on my own The New-York Review, and Atheneum Magazine, Vol. 2 personal shortlist

    The unblinking eyes met the stares of the passersby and tourists who poured into the suare from all directions The tourists’ own gaze like that of all moving crowds was mild and unfocused but people’s eyes suddenly froze as soon as they encountered this sight as if their astonished pupils struggled to sink back into the depths of their skulls and only the impossibility of doing this compelled them to stand still and face what
