Mexican Gothic Overview

Blending elements of horror, Gothic literature, and fairy tale romance, Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a vivid and disturbing depiction of a family’s grotesque past as it is gradually uncovered by Noemí Taboada, a young woman seeking to understand her cousin’s mysterious illness. The novel takes place in the year 1950, with most of its events occurring in an old Victorian house known as High Place in the Mexican village of El Triunfo, and covers themes of nature, xenophobia, colonialism, and misogyny.
