K.M. Szpara’s Docile: A good novel about consent, a bad novel about capitalism

K.M. Szpara’s Docile is a good novel about consent and a bad novel about capitalism.

Docile’s tagline is “There is no consent under capitalism.” This might make one think it’s about the inherently exploitative aspects of modern predatory capitalism, the intermingling of the personal — sexuality — and the political — class.
