Mort is a sledgehammer — sometimes to the heart, sometimes to the toes or kneecaps. She reminds me of a young (she's only in her late 20s!!) Zbigniew Herbert, but perhaps even more cutting, even more drastic in conceptualizing war (with such a powerful feminine angle) but creating a vision of hope. Yes, a sledgehammer, but also a master carpenter.
