"A student at the Buenos Aires School of Philosophy attempts to put her life (academically and romantically) in the service of a professor whose nearly forgotten theories of violence she plans to popularize and radicalize--against his wishes. Meanwhile, a young couple--a documentary filmmaker and a blogger--engage in a series of cerebral and sexual misadventures. In a novel crammed with philosophy, group sex, revolutionary politics, and a fighting fish named Yorick, Oloixarac leads her characters and the reader through dazzling and digressive intellectual byways to an Internet hack that confronts us with a catalog of historical violence, devastation, and atrocity throughout the centuries. Spellbinding, strange, groundbreaking, and already translated into several languages, Savage Theories is the debut of a major new voice on the world stage"-- Provided by publisher.

Clearly a talented writer, but to what end? My guess is that this was written for the benefit of her PhD thesis advisor. No real story or characters, as best as I could tell.
