First published in 1965, Patas de perro is a fierce allegory of discrimination and social exclusion in modern society. This brave novel is the story of Bobi: half dog, half-human. At home he sleeps on the floor, doesn’t wear shoes, and eats raw meat. At school he is taunted and physically assaulted and is a painful circus attraction.
