INTERNATIONAL PRAISE FOR TENDER IS THE FLESH BY AGUSTINA BAZTERRICA

WINNER OF ARGENTINA’S CLARÍN NOVELA PRIZE 2017

"This book will pull you in, take hold, and not let go until you reach the final page—perhaps far longer than that. Without a doubt, my favorite read of this year.” —Christina Dalcher, author of Vox

“At what price is a world without animals viable? That’s the question posted by Argentinian author Agustina Bazterricca.... With an artfulness perfectly calibrated with irony, [she] presents an astounding portrait of a humanity ready to do anything to satisfy itself, even at its own expense.Le Monde

“A dystopic fable as chilling as it is compelling.”Paris Match

“Hypnotic.... [Bazterrica’s] hell is akin to that of Richard Fleischer’s and Soylent Green.”—L’Obs

“From a fear of the future (overpopulation and a shortage of meat), Bazterrica has penned a stunning novel on the plasticity of our moral values, and what Hannah Arendt called “the banality of evil.””Lire

“Heiress to Orwell, the Argentinian author deploys a voice as vivid as it is chilling. In an increasingly dehumanized world, she pushes us to a dizzying reflection on violence, love, [and] power.Livres Hebdo

“This Argentinian novel, winner of the Clarin prize in 2017, pulls no punches. Agustina Bazterrica succeeds in normalizing a cruelty beyond words.”Le Canard Enchainé

“A political fable, a denunciation by way of absurdity on the fate society reserves for animals and a love story outside conventional norms, [this novel] seizes you and won’t let go.Télérama

Skilled seamstress, Agustina [Baztericca] unspools her thread and stitches the words to bring us wherever she wants, upending our sensibility through a ride that has everything in a final twist.”Maze

A fable on the gruesome side of the modern world, impressionistic and poetic.”Clarin

“A biting and uncompromising expression of what happens daily in our society.”La Nacion

“Hypnotic, gruesome, beautiful, captivates the reader within moments.”—El Imparcial

“Heavy, magnetic, disturbing—the novel of the year.”Culturamas
