And because I suck at summaries, @amili wrote me a summary of IRKADURA. What do you think?
Irkadura isn’t just Irka nor just Dura. No. Irina Myshko is more than that. Abused and neglected by her mother, Irka hasn’t spoken a word for most of her short Soviet life. The only neglect she hopes for but doesn’t receive comes from pig-like men, specifically the disgusting attentions of her mother’s boyfriend. Pregnant and alone, she escapes into another reality populated with beasts, one where people are revealed as the animals they are. Will she learn to live in this splintered world? Or descend into madness? The choice, for once, is hers.
