FLAC: A Narrative
Imbuing the crudestand often unbearably violentrealism with a dreamlike, almost delusional quality, Serge Andri offers up a strange and scandalous narrative that is, he tells us, one thousand percent autobiographical. In a hallucinatory account of a murder (perhaps the craziest ever written), evoking an aunt right out of a Goya painting; the hypnotic tyranny of a boys school united in delicious Catholic masochism, the revelation of a luminous corpse, and the paralyzing sight of his mothers concerted rape by his grandparents and his father, FLAC, the hero of indeterminate age, describes not so much his life, his memories, and his fantasies as his complex relation to the dictatorship of words.
