1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Set in an unnamed territory that appears to be under military rule. It is narrated in the first person, but the narrators remain anonymous, as do most of the other characters. The language used is atypically English, but akin to the translations that might appear in overseas "foreign offices." Perhaps someone transcribed firsthand accounts of certain incidents, events, and states of mind, as narrated by participants in the struggle, and then passed on the transcription for translation; or perhaps the accounts were simply translated firsthand into English and edited later."--Jacket
