This is the queer, subversive Western I’ve been looking for! It reaches into the myth of the frontier and romanticization of colonialism in the Americas and pulls out a scandalous, hallucinatory, sexy, and beautiful story of liberation. At times a queer sentimental education, at others a throbbing pastoral, and often a romp with surprises around every corner. A bold translation that does justice to China Iron's grace and bravado.— Luis
China Iron reimagines Argentina's macho national origin myth from a female perspective, in a joyful, hallucinatory journey across the pampas of 19th century.
