“The woman in the novel, Gloria, goes out into her snow-covered street and starts to follow a set of footprints in front of her house. Getting bigger and deeper on the way, they lead to a fence around a luxurious mansion in the suburbs, in a neighbourhood where the grimy ditches that scar the rest of the city give way to gardens, arbours, summerhouses and swimming pools: the world of the victors.*”.
