Political Fiction

Our fiction books cover a plethora of cult, trangressive and political material

"The forces of the life of nature lie outside us and we are not conscious of them, and we call these forces gravity, inertia, electricity, animal force, and so on; but we are conscious of the force of man's life, and we call it freedom"

Tolstoy (1867)
