The central character of the novel is called Z, a nickname that expresses helplessness, a handsome man with an explosive sensuality. The drama of the senses, which seem to explode from crazy excitement and frustration, coincides with the terrible discovery of Z since he saw his parents making love.
Faced with this finding, obsessive images alternate in the mind of the protagonist. Z remembers his mother bent at right angles and the father that is on him. Besieged by the eros and its perversions, the protagonist of the novel is seen to be watching not only the world but the light of his desire, to understand, to justify the reality that oppresses him and makes him feel inadequate.
Z peeps mercilessly across the forbidden windows, to look, basically, within himself. The senses are in turmoil and vibrate in taboos, in the modesty of things, in sex, in an attempt to break down the barriers that a lonely upbringing has given to a man who grows disoriented and unsure. The senses of Z, in this novel, are essentially those of the voyeur.
The voyeur spies not so much the object as its movement and the behavior right from his early days of childhood. It doubled and this love of sexual frenzy last forever. Simply, Z tries to take advantage of the love while there, as a sunny day tries to take advantage before winter.
Z sees sex as a disruption of the senses to an unconscious desire. Clear Freudian influences emerge in the composition of this book, those influences that will lead Z, in the space of existence, to say openly that the roots of our psyche are all to be found in childhood.
The strictly private behavior of the soul senses leads us to see what no one could see. It is spied not only what is prohibited, but also what is unknown. And Z believes there is a kind of obscure relationship between the voyeuristic world and can spy on a secret of nature in the slot of a daring experiment.
At the end, when all is said, Z must feel the same feelings of curiosity and the profanatory challenge of an inexperienced boy. The book alludes to a continuous concatenation of facts and ideas, with the backbone, that is, of the chronological story.
The novel is daring, constantly poised between the worm of sex and the hardness of a liquefied love that hurts the condition of inevitable surrender. And if Z looked desperately for even the keys to open the door of the mystery of the face of so much consternation, it will end only to process pointless ruminations.
The dark door of his present becomes the dark threshold of memory. The betrayal, which is most of his burned senses, will push him to the irrational, the development of a neurotic turbulence. The story in this novel is the story of disappointment, the comedy of the vile character's likeness in which is reflected the unexpressed desires.
The pages of the force are entirely centered in the underground story that runs parallel to that of the events, that is, the psychological history, the derailment of the senses of Z, the disruptive impurities of his life and the cynicism of a man that is enhanced by sumptuous adjectives.
The novel is hot and sharp, violent in its most significant traits, in precarious conditions of a young man who is forced to survive, finally, to neutralize his love, to bind the senses of an impenetrable armour of acceptance that seems to save not only to continue an already corrupt relationship, but, perhaps, no longer viable.
