Curious Animal review's Andrés Caicedo's classic, just out in paperback by Penguin Classics in the UK.
Karl Thomas writes: "The thrill of discovering this raw, precocious talent and essential new voice is tempered by the foreknowledge it has already been extinguished. But there can be no ambivalence about its potency. Caicedo’s suicide was clearly premeditated. If he had lived on, his words would have sounded insincere, which in turn would have meant he’d reached adulthood. For Caicedo, failing his peers wasn’t an option. It’s rare to find a writer with such conviction (even if we may feel it’s flawed) that they will not only take us to the edge but throw themselves over it."
