The author creates a world familiar to almost no one...an international party (where people cannot even communicate due to differences in language) that is invaded by rebels who hold the guests hostage...and subtly demonstrates how beautiful life could be if only we could block out the prejudices and stressors of the world and love one another... While so unlike a "typical" real life month, it captures every reader's understanding of joy and sorrow. Beautifully written and powerful.
