Ollie says: 

If Kathy Acker had written wild Dominican post-cyberpunk about ecological and temporal collapse, it might have looked something like Tentacle. The queer Yoruban eco-sci-fi skewering of the contemporary art world you didn’t know you needed.* With pirates. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

*You probably knew deep down.

Plucked from her life on the streets of post-apocalyptic Santo Domingo, young maid Acilde Figueroa finds herself at the heart of a Santerìa prophecy: only she can travel back in time and save the ocean – and humanity – from disaster. But first she must become the man she always was – with the help of a sacred anemone. Tentacle is an electric novel with a big appetite and a brave vision, plunging headfirst into questions of climate change, technology, Yoruba ritual, queer politics, poverty, sex, colonialism and contemporary art. Bursting with punk energy and lyricism, it’s a restless, addictive trip: The Tempest meets the telenovela.
