About This Book
"Colonialism, the specter of patriarchy and Gothic horror" A strange letter arrives to Noemi, who is enjoying her college life in Mexico City. The letter of Catalina, a cousin who is married to an Englishman who owns a silver mine and lives in a mansion, is rambling about her husband's attempt to poison and ghosts that appear every night. Noemi, who headed to a strange village to save her sister, is overwhelmed by the feeling of arriving in another era in the past.
Old-fashioned mansions that airlifted everything from building materials to furniture from England, people who seem to be hiding something in English only, dusty silverware, books like Eugenics: Journal of Racial Improvement. To Catalina, who mutters with unfocused eyes, "It's in the wall," the family doctor only diagnoses it as tuberculosis. Trying to adapt to the atmosphere of the mansion, Noemi finally sees the huge darkness hidden. "Mexican Gothic," which won the Locus Award in 2021 and the British Fantastic Literature Association's horror novel award, is scheduled to be dramatized by Hulu. The strange and intense world created by the meeting of distorted ghosts of history, Mexican folk tales, and Gothic horror fascinates readers.
