In this pitch-perfect debut novel, Agustina Bazterrica brings us a story of family and collapse set in a surreal world dominated by a deadly virus. A brilliant young scientist, Marcos works at the local processing plant where he is tasked with slaughtering animals. But the flesh of humans is the most valuable, so he feels remunerated for his work. Quietly, Marcos’s wife has fled, his father has gone mad, and Marcos finds himself lost in a world that seems to be spinning out of control as more governments introduce new laws to support their transition away from humanity.

The story begins in Mexico City, where a couple is arguing about their son’s future. The father is a butcher, and the son loves to work in the kitchen, preparing the raw meat they will sell in hopes of providing for his family through this new crisis. When that transition comes and so much is lost without works of art, chefs, or daily conveniences, what will remain?

When I think of tender is the flesh, Agustina Bazterrica’s absurd and brilliant first novel, my mind turns to Philip K. Dick. That shouldn’t be surprising; this comically castrated English professor who lives in Austin, Texas might as well be a dystopian Philip K. Dick waiting to happen somewhere in the world where he can find space to ruminate on what it means to be human—and so much more.

Working at the local processing plant, Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans—though nobody calls them that anymore. His wife has left him, his father is sinking into dementia, and Marcos tries not to think too hard about how he makes a living. After all, it happened so quickly. First, it was reported that an infectious virus has made all animal meat poisonous to humans. Then governments initiated “the Transition”—a plan that began when society collapsed from the effects of an unknown disease and ended when—everything changed forever.

About Tender is the Flesh Book

Working at the local processing plant, Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans —though no one calls them that anymore.

His wife has left him, his father is sinking into dementia, and Marcos tries not to think too hard about how he makes a living. After all, it happened so quickly. First, it was reported that an infectious virus has made all animal meat poisonous to humans. Then governments initiated the “Transition.” Now, eating human meat—“special meat”—is legal. Marcos tries to stick to numbers, consignments, and processing.

Then one day he’s given a gift: a live specimen of the finest quality. Though he’s aware that any form of personal contact is forbidden on pain of death, little by little, he starts to treat her like a human being. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost—and what might still be saved.
