When we meet Katherine, the winning-and relatively disturbing-twenty-three-year-old narrator, she has simply left Italy and arrived in manhattan urban, yet what has propelled her there's a secret. She quickly moves up an affair with a middle-aged Russian émigré novelist she meets at the subway, and shortly strikes into his condominium. Katherine's occasional allusions to a frighteningly eccentric mom and tyrannical father recommend a somberness on the heart of her differently flippant and sardonic demeanor. quickly stressed, she starts off visiting around the continent, trailed, all over the place she is going, by means of a string of murders. because the ritualistic killings start to pile up, Katherine takes to meditating on cannibalism in literature, artwork, and background. the tale races towards a hair-raising end, whereas Katherine and the reader shut in at the purposes for either her and her mother's fascination with aberrant, violent behavior.
A brilliantly refined statement on twenty-first-century consumerism and Western culture's obsession with new frontiers, A Carnivore's Inquiry is an unsettling exploration of the questionable appetites that lurk underneath the veneer of civilization.
