Item description for Fear of Animals by Enrique Serna...

After trading his desire to write for a life as a secret policeman, former crime reporter Evaristo Reyes finds himself immersed in the thuggish mire of Mexico's law enforcement. He justifies the sacrifice of his artistic integrity as a necessary evil aimed at creative research---all the while enjoying the salary and perks of his squalid position. When his brutish boss orders him to kill a marginal literary critic who has insulted the president in print, he identifies with the scribe instead and is soon incriminated for a murder he fails to commit. This narrative eloquently depicts the difficulties of having a social conscience in a world where corruption, censorship, and back-stabbing are a way of life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fear of Animals?

Stinging attack on Mexico's cultural mafias  Jul 1, 2008
They know who they are - although Enrique Serna is careful not to identify the heavyweights who have dominated Mexico's literary culture like a mafia for a generation, and simply refuse to loosen their grip. In this thinly-veiled, full-scale assault on the nepotism at the heart of the literary establishment during the Salinas regime in the early 1990s, the Mexican author uses all his dexterity as a writer to tell a tale of corruption that cleverly compares the country's cultural hierarchy with the hated Judicial police. This is an important, and clever, novel that earned the author nothing but venom from his peers. He must be doing something right.
