The Adventures of China Iron by Gabriela Cabezon Camara
Shortlisted for the 2020 International Booker Prize.
Gabriela Cabezón Cámara, with humour and sophistication, re-writes Martín Fierro from a feminist, LGBT, postcolonial point of view. She creates a hilarious novel that is nevertheless incisive in its criticism of the way societies come into being, and the way they venerate mythical heroes.
