A young philosophy student who stalks her old professor through the faculty corridors; a radical left winger who writes letters to Mao; two adolescents who find in their respective physical and moral deformities good cause to join forces: this dark comedy is filled with complex, flawed characters who live in a tangled world of impossible, visionary, and ungraspable theories, theories for individuals adrift in a sea of supposed electronic and digital connectedness, but in reality ever more fragmented. The novel wryly addresses themes of fear and violence, war and sex, eroticism and philosophy as it declares war on the concept of seduction in an era of social networks and blogs. This book marks a tart and immensely enjoyable debut from one of the most promising—and controversial—voices in Latin American fiction.
