In Crude, Sally O’Reilly sets up a relationship between academia and the oil industry. What emerges in this ingenious novel is an ever-expanding exploration of how art historical and literary theory can become embedded within our everyday realities. O’Reilly utilises the double-meanings of its title in order to explore the slippery and sticky underflow of rhetoric, social networks and in-fighting within the art world. The result is a work that oscillates between fiction and reality. Crude is a revelation.  — Hans-Ulrich Obrist
