Abstract:

A darkly funny, surreal novel set in Chile and Peru, Albina and the Dog-Men is Alejandro Jodorowsky's sprawling modern myth in which sexual desire appears as a dangerous and generative force that mutates and transforms, unraveling identities and rending the social and moral fabric of a small town. Written with the stunning vision and cinematic flair he brought to his cult 1970s psychedelic freak-out films El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky turns the classic stranger-comes-to-town narrative on its head in his novel Albina and the Dog-Men. When two women--a beautiful amnesiac albino giantess and her protector, a leather-tough woman called Crabby--arrive in this South American desert town, Albina's otherworldly allure and unfettered sensuality turns men into wild animals. Chased at the same time by a clubfoot criminal, Albina and Crabby must fend off their aggressors before the town consumes itself in an orgy of lust and violence.
