    Review quote
    "Sicha's uncanny, absurdist reduction is more than just a fun-to-read ruse: "Very Recent History" shames you, the reader, for losing sight, on a day-to-day basis, of just who is controlling your world... [VRH] is exultant in a way no mere clever premise can be."--Page-Turner, New Yorker.com
