And Kafka does get a mention in the book: Each one had had a kucineki, tattooed on his or her arm. What is happening around him is something very different.

The ISBN does match This book conveys the despair and horror of the ‘disappeared’, from the point of view of the victim’s families, witnesses to the atrocities and the kidnappers themselves.

It is hard to process, yet very important to know that this happened. The structure of the book served to confuse me as to the exact order of events, which was frustrating until I realized that this helped me understand the confusion and frustration I read this in English – don’t know why the summary isn’t.
