Tender is the Flesh, by Agustina Bazterrica

Staff Pick

With the force of prophecy, Bazterrica's novel looks at what happens when human meat is substituted for that of animals--which has become poisoned--offering a glimpse of the lengths society may go to preserve, and justify, the status quo, Written in detached, powerful prose, the narrative interrogates the rot at the center of capitalism, exposing its moral failure as a system in which everything can be turned into a commodity for mass consumption under the right conditions.
