Andrea Victrix presents a dystopian vision of Palma, Mallorca, now named ‘Turclub’, in the year 2050.

Theunnamed narrator, who bears a certain resemblance to the author, had placed himself in voluntary cryo-stasisin 1965, fatigued by modern ‘civilization’ and morality, only to reawaken 85 years later with the physique of a30-year old.

Villalonga sets up an intriguing interplay between the narrator and the eponymous, androgynousAndrea Victrix, so-called Director of Pleasure, in a satirical, sometimes self-ironizing exploration of contemporaryissues such as gender and sexuality, consumerism, environmental disaster and the politics of big business
