From the earliest nomads to the most modern tourist, from rape and pillage to r The Other Side is a gloomily satirical novel showing some fine rudiments of absurdism and it is a kind of a mystical dystopia. Refresh and try again.

Come on, it’s me! This is what I liked about The Other Side: Those, my dear sir, are fundamental propositions.

The Other Side

Kjbin is the demi-God of the Dream Realm, what does the rust really refer to, what does the giant penis mean? Imagine yourself in another world where people commit orgies in the streets and snakes curl under your bead-shee Imagine you are on a train and you are going to a distant place that you have been to before.

Recommended to Nate D by: I have a lizard tongue, apparently. Blah blah ota he was an artist and The Other Side was his only novel.
