Pythia in the Basement

Alejandro Marron (Atmosphere Press)

| Reviewed by David Reyes

Pythia in the Basement by Alejandro Marron can be rightly described as the story of society — its insanity, the absurdity that punctuates contemporary life. It is a tale of ''failure, love, sex, and betrayal,'' a story that follows an unusually ordinary protagonist as he struggles to come to grips with society, pondering why it is easier to feed on half-truths and avoid confronting reality than it is to face the inevitable. Roger is a polymath and a poet, and his analytical skills push him to question the system that silently oppresses him...
