Even the siege begins slowly, with disquieting news of massacres in cities far away.

Soon the very proper British are reduced to eating insects and consorting across class lines. Farrell's descriptions of life inside the Residency are simultaneously horrifying and blackly humorous." -- Provided by publisher."@en ;
