Self-destruction of a group of wild young thrill-seekers in the the subterranean nightlife of Buenos Aires
Book by Cecilia Szperling
A blunt new departure in Argentine writing by women, this novel delves into the seedy, dangerous world of narcotics usually claimed by male authors. Genuinely shocking, the book provides a psychological study of self-destruction as it follows a group of wild young thrill-seekers, both men and women, as they wander through the subterranean nightlife of
Aires. Taking ever-increasing risks, they spend their time shooting up, stealing, travelling together, hating each other, and even sinking into madness, all at a frenetic pace.
