The Wild Theories
The Wild Theories provoked critical and cultural controversy upon its release, with its subject matter and Oloixarac's public image coming under scrutiny. According to Oloixarac, "The book has sparked verbal violence and a sexist uproar precisely because it doesn’t deal with the issues that are traditionally associated with ‘women's literature,’ but instead contains a sociological critique that is both intelligent and satirical, which are apparently traits solely reserved for men."
