The first novel by renowned Slovene publisher, politician, and TV personality Luka Novak is an intellectual farce, a surrealistic gallop through philosophy and art. With echoes of Thomas Pynchon and Woody Allen (with Hegel chanting in the background), we follow the ethical, erotic, and culinary adventures of a neurotic Slovene psychiatrist, a sassy Bosnian masseuse, a German mythology professor, and a politically-influential building contractor, involved in religious iconographic propaganda that incites a revolution in Venezuela. The witty and wildly original plot runs from Provence through Ljubljana and Tubingen to Caracas, and weaves in solutions to important ideas and questions: What do men want? What gender will rule the future? What is the destiny that Latin America deserves? And how is the Golden Shower from the Danae myth linked to the Immaculate Conception?
