Review: Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist

Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist by Sunil Yapa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The subject of this debut novel is the real-life protests that disrupted the 1999 World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference in Seattle, which resulted in hundreds of arrests, police resignations, and an increased media spotlight on the WTO.

Sunil Yapa's novel explores the motives and actions of those who plan to take part in peaceful protests and the Seattle police whose efforts to assure the crowds do not interrupt the conference. It's exceptionally well-written and I look forward to more of Yapa's work. Highly recommended.
