About The Book
From Library Journal
The pastures of Hans Knuchel’s Swiss farm blossom with happily grazing cows. At the herd’s lead walks Blosch, the biggest cow Ambrosio has seen since leaving Spain to become a guest worker in “the prosperous land.” While he had expected large cows, he had not expected the hostility of the Swiss toward foreigners, their harsh looks and harsher treatment. Yet he endures first the old-fashioned ways of the Knuchel farm and then the creeping modernization he finds at his later job in the slaughterhouse. Sterchi’s first novel is an imaginatively structured narrative on the topic of bovines, one that will excite few readers. This is not The Jungle, and Sterchi seems painfully aware that he falls short by comparison: references to Sinclair’s masterpiece abound. Topic aside, however, the three-part focus glued together with the character of Blosch shows real skill. Unfortunately, this isn’t enough to make Cow a prime choice.
