by Llorenç Villalonga | 15 March 2021
PAPERBACK
Andrea Vìctrix presents a dystopian vision of Palma, Mallorca, now named 'Turclub', in the year 2050. Theunnamed narrator, who bears a certain resemblance to the author, had placed himself in voluntary cryo-stasisin 1965, fatigued by modern 'civilization' and morality, only to reawaken 85 years later with the physique of a30-year old. Villalonga sets up an intriguing interplay between the narrator and the eponymous, androgynousAndrea Vìctrix, so-called Director of Pleasure, in a satirical, sometimes self-ironizing exploration of contemporaryissues such as gender and sexuality, consumerism, environmental disaster and the politics of big business.Both of its time and startlingly prescient, Andrea Vìctrix merits a place amongst the greats of Europeandystopian fiction.
