Benjamin von Wyl

To be part of a counterworld or to be recalibrated, it’s up to you. – Is it?

Benjamin von Wyl’s novel Hyena is a contemporary novel through and through: in the here and now of precarious occupations, medial techniques of the self and the question of the political in a capitalised world. All of this is told in a very precise and fast-paced language, with a sharp eye for deceitful social conventions and techniques of domination. Contemporary literature!
