The Adventures of China Iron

By Gabriela Cabezón Cámara (Translated by Fiona Mackintosh and Iona Macintyre)

In a unique reformulation of history and literary tradition, Gabriela Cabezón Cámara, with humour and sophistication, re-writes Argentina’s foundational gaucho epic 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.
