Tentacle

by Rita Indiana

Can teenage prostitute Acilde change gender and travel backwards in time in order to reverse the overwhelming pollution of the sea surrounding Santo Domingo? And might she be unknowingly accompanied by one with less worthy motives? Enjoy the satisfyingly surreal mix of sex, religion, contemporary art and politics before Acilde makes her final choice.

Extract

Underneath grew a masculine skin. Her cells reconfigured themselves like worker bees around her jaws .... It was daybreak when the body, confronted with the total annihilation of the female reproductive system, convulsed again.
Translated by Achy Obejas
