Review of Contemporary Fiction Reviews Babyfucker

Jeremy M. Davies reviews Urs Allemann’s Babyfucker for the Review of Contemporary Fiction.

“‘I fuck babies,’ is how he introduces himself, and perhaps those with weak constitutions will venture no further. To stop there, however, is to let your scruples deprive you of a severe and ugly gem; and while I would hate to diminish the shock value of the book, let’s be clear: There is no babyfucking here…” Davies adds, “Here one finds a text both revolting and comforting—comforting because, god help us, Allemann demonstrates that literature can always be made, even if you need to fuck a few babies to get the job done.”
