Philosophical Toys : A Novel
Nina, a young drifter from Spain, finds that the strangest of stories is hiding in her father's loft in Almería: there she finds ninety-five pairs of shoes, and this discovery propels her into a series of adventures, inquiries, and reflections on the material world. Was her father a pervert? What's the difference between fetishism and consumerism, anyway? Philosophical Toys is a naughtily cerebral novel about our relationship with objects, filled with ruminations on sexuality, money, and Luis Buñuel.
