Snuff
 Eleni Giannakaki

361pp.
Hestia, 2010
ISBN: 978-960-05-1465-0

As the title suggests, with its hint at the atrocities committed by the Manson family in the 1970s, as well as the films of Michael Powell, David Cronenberg and Alejandro Amenabar, Snuff tackles the macabre obsession with witnessing violent death. Author Eleni Yiannakaki investigates death as an aesthetic act, an extreme test of the art of the gaze. That dark fixation holds a young man hostage in Crete in this tale where private life becomes gruesomely public. The narrative spurts out in a torrential monologue that employs constant flashbacks to relate the story of a life through childhood and adolescence to adulthood. It reveals the ruined inner world of someone whose existence has been devastated by acute isolation.
With agonising slowness, the complex facts of the story come to light and Snuff shows how a distorted and perverted response to images has smothered and devoured reality.
