Siútico

Óscar Contardo

NON FICTION. VERGARA, 2008. 311 PAGES.

In 2008 Oscar Contardo published Siútico: arribismo, abajismo y vida social en Chile (Pretension: class ambition, snobbery and society in Chile, Vergara). It spent a year on the best seller lists and was hailed by critics in Chile as one of the most important titles of 2008. Siútico is a biography of that very Chilean word – meaning nouveau-riche or kitsch – which Contardo uses as a unifying theme to tell the story of class-snobbery and racism in Chilean society today.
