In the year 2022 and in pursuit of her beautiful and not-quite-human father, Carme Risk enters narrative therapy. Propelled by her memories and her fathers journal, which take her from the Edenic island of her childhood to a revolutionary Latin American nation to life in northern California, Risk moves through worlds of romantic intrigue, machete murders, occult freedom fighters, and surrealist bacchanals. A roiling and wildly entertaining ride, Black Oxen is a hyperinventive novel of political revolution, black magic, sexual predation, and a therapists couch.
