Abstract:

Savage and dizzying, Sweat is the extraordinary tale of an editor who describes, with impudence and corrosive humor, the inner workings and relationships of the literary world. A merciless satire of the vanity fair that press tours for writers and their out-of-control egos can be, this novel is also a sharp inquiry into the gay underworld where affection takes a backseat to the unfolding of a series of fleeting, extreme carnal relationships brought about by Grindr, the successful social network for homosexual contacts that Alf, the editor who narrates this story, uses as often as his authors use him as an advisor, consultant, or accomplice. Meanwhile, the city of Santiago, where the few days depicted by Sweat take place, takes on an unusual presence that Chilean fiction has rarely been able to capture. A tragicomic novel, structured masterfully with Fuguet's agile, festive, and electric writing, that has become a landmark piece in Latin American literature.
