The Good Person of Szechwan
Arcade Pub., 1994 - 147 Seiten

That the whims of the gods and the inability to be "good" and survive turn her into the more practical male counterpart for survival is fascinating to me. But she should have lost the boyfriend. Can you say "jerk?" I knew you could. Vollständige Rezension lesen
