Synopsis

Marcia is sixteen, overweight and unhappy. One day, as she's walking down a Buenos Aires street, she hears a shout: 'Wannafuck?' Startled, she turns round and is confronted by two punk girls Lenin and Mao. Soon, she's beguiled by them and the possibilities they open up. But the two have little time for a philosophical discussion of love: they need proof, and with their own savage logic the duo, calling themselves the Commando of Love, hold up a supermarket as the novel climaxes in an unforgettable splatter-fest finale.

Cesar Aira is the author of around 80 books. The Argentinian's writing is considered to be among the most important and influential in Latin America today, marked by extreme eccentricity and innovation, and a playful spirit. He is without a doubt the true heir to Jorge Luis Borges' literature of ideas. ---------- Nick Caistor is a British translator and journalist, best known for his translations of fiction from the Spanish and Portuguese. He has translated more than 50 books and was the first to translate Cesar Aira into English. He has won the Valle-Inclan Prize for translation from Spanish three times, as well as other awards. He is a contributor to BBC Radio 4, the BBC World Service, the Times Literary Supplement, and The Guardian.
