Staff Reviews


The Adventures of China Iron far exceeded my already high hopes: for such a short book, this story feels like an epic one. This is a kind of retelling of an mythic tale, and the elements of the original that the author chooses to play with are inventive, alternately making fun of the source text and twisting it to craft a compelling adventure plot. I have to mention the stellar translation, as well: on a sentence level, this book is beautiful and clever.

— From Alyson

Description


China Iron reimagines Argentina's macho national origin myth from a female perspective, in a joyful, hallucinatory journey across the pampas of 19th century.
