Description

A novel of seduction and madness, hate and love, set in the world of Argentinean academia and animated by the spirits of Wittgenstein, Rousseau, Nabokov and Bolano A student at the Buenos Aires School of Philosophy attempts to put her life (academically and romantically) in the service of a professor whose nearly forgotten theories of violence she plans to popularize and radicalize--against his wishes. Meanwhile, a young couple--a documentary filmmaker and a blogger--engage in a series of cerebral and sexual misadventures. In a novel crammed with philosophy, group sex, revolutionary politics, and a fighting fish named Yorick, Oloixarac leads her characters and the reader through dazzling and digressive intellectual byways to an Internet hack that confronts us with a catalog of historical violence, devastation, and atrocity throughout the centuries. Spellbinding, strange, groundbreaking, and already translated into several languages, Savage Theories is the debut of a major new voice on the world stage.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Ana Grosse casts a spell as she mirrors the dreamlike prose of Argentinian Oloixarac's dazzling first novel. Delivering three narratives with slight alterations in tone and emphasis, Grosse portrays the young Kamtchowsky and her boyfriend, Pabst, as they move through today's energetic Buenos Aires, searching for the novel's enigmatic narrator, Rosa Ostreech. In a separate narrative, Grosse sparkles as she creates the world of 1917 and a Dutch anthropologist who finds connections between present-day violence and the evolution of our primate ancestors. Deftly mixing the humorous and the tragic, Grosse portrays historic and contemporary characters with a slight smile in her voice. R.O. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
