Review: Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I don’t know why it took me so long to finish this one. It was atmospheric and haunting, and thought-provoking. SMG created a non-Victorian gothic world that was, in turn, vivid and eerie and both beautiful and terrifying.

CW: Attempted rape, Sexual assault, Incest, Cannibalism, Drugging, Eugenics, Forced marriage, Graphic violence, Murder, Racism, Sexual harassment. The book also contains discussions about colonialism, race, and genetics.
