Beautiful prose about the horror of colonialism
Content warning vague spoilers, particularly in TW at the end of the review
Assembly frequently reads like a poem and is visceral about the devastating effects of colonialism on a person. It critiques English/British natioanlism, racism and classism directly and intermingles these critiques extremely well. The character is very distinct; we learn later why she expresses herself the way she does in the book.
