#13 — Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist

Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist by Sunil Yapa
Rating: 5/5
  • A really impressive debut novel about the WTO protests in Seattle; there’s views from all sides through the different characters
  • I was a freshman in college when the WTO protests occurred; at the time, it was a very small blip in my consciousness (which I feel stupid about in retrospect, since I specifically chose a school known for its liberal views and protest culture)
  • The story is told in the way that renews interest in the events that transpired; there are some very interesting articles out in recent years that retrospectively analyzes the events
