Tender is the Flesh

By Agustina Bazterrica (Translated by Sarah Moses)

In Bazterrica's dystopian novel, a virus has contaminated all animal meat, leading to cannibalism becoming legal. Marcos, a processing plant manager, struggles with this new reality and tries not to think too hard about how he makes a living. Tender is the Flesh is an unrelentingly dark and disquieting look at the way societies conform to committing atrocities. Winner of Argentina's Clarín Novela Prize.
