"A lovely vivid maximalist whirlwind of a unique. Oloixarac’s wit and ambition are obvious on each web page. by means of comparability, so much different modern fiction turns out a bit uninteresting and simple-minded."
—Hari Kunzru, writer of Gods with no Men
A debut novel of seduction and insanity, hate and love, set on the planet of Argentine academia and lively by means of the spirits of Wittgenstein, Rousseau, Nabokov and Bolaño
Rosa Ostreech, a pseudonym for the novel’s appealing yet self-conscious narrator, consists of round a trilingual variation of Aristotle’s Metaphysics, struggles together with her thesis on violence and tradition, sleeps with a bourgeois former guerrilla, and pursues her aged professor with a hugely charged combination of eroticism and desperation. in different places on campus, Pabst and Kamtchowsky travel the underground scene of Buenos Aires, dabbling in ketamine, staff intercourse, games, and hacking. And in Africa in 1917, a Dutch anthropologist named Johan van Vliet starts paintings on a thought that explains human awareness and civilization via connection with our early primate ancestors—animals, who, within the technique of turning into human, spent millions of years as prey.
Savage Theories wryly explores worry and violence, conflict and intercourse, eroticism and philosophy. Its complicated and wrong characters grapple with a large number of very unlikely, visionary theories, looking for their position in our fragmented electronic world.
