A few excerpts from my own work:
‘What is certain is that the underlying claim of this novel – that the fall of Todor Zhivkov from the Bulgarian government in the late 1980s was primarily due to a group of streaking students – is not one that we should take literally….
…this novel introduces you to parts of the body you were never sure existed, or at least never considered paying attention to.
…It is about the excruciating futility of protest, the sordid reality of violence, the astounding prudery of liberals, the eternal eccentricity of youth, the heroic authority of nudity and the bare-faced cheek of the human condition…’
I am, of course, writing about Boris Yashmilye. See more here.
