    ‘… leaping and turning in zesty spurts with an insouciance that leaves nothing to chance’

    Donald Hutera (2016)

    ‘Agudo’s Inside The Animal delved even deeper into the existential swamp with a contemplation on reflexes and instincts that truly underscored how little human nature has changed during the so-called ascent of Man.’
