Something has changed in Amos Keres, a university mathematics professor - his sentences trail off in class, he is disgusted by the sight of his wife and son, and he longs to flee the comfortable bourgeois life he finds himself a part of. Written in a fragmented style that echoes the character's increasingly fragile hold on reality, With My Dog-Eyes is an intensely vivid read. Hilst, whose father was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, has created a lacerating, and yet oddly hopeful, portrayal of a descent into hell.

A rambling train of thought that is supposed to be poetic. Points of view are switched frequently and without warning and there is no story to speak of. An utter waste of paper.

Hilda Hilst is labeled as one of the greatest Brazilian writers of the twentieth century. This novel accounts her mental unraveling in an avant-garde fashion.
