Jesus. Writing summaries is bloody hard. Don't you guys think so?? UGH.
So, after much thinking this morning, I got IRKADURA summary to this. Let me know your valuable thoughts. I have to finalize it in the next few days. /cc @colleenalbert @amili
"My mama became a catfish when I was two, on the day I stopped talking."
Abused and neglected by her mother, Irina Myshko hasn’t spoken a word for most of her short Soviet life. Nicknamed Irkadura, she is thought of as a mute idiot and is repeatedly raped by her mother's boyfriend. To survive, she escapes into another reality where people reveal themselves as beasts: jackals, horseflies, ravens, pigs... Pregnant and alone, Irina is faced with living in this splintered world, or descending into madness. The choice, for once, is hers.
