Synopsis

On a dark and stormy night, an unnamed narrator is visited by two women: one a former lover, the other a stranger. They ruthlessly question their host and claim to know his greatest secret: that he is, in fact, a woman. In increasingly desperate attempts to defend his masculinity, perplexed by the stranger's dubious claims to be the writer Amparo Davila, he finds himself spiralling deeper into a haunted past that may or may not be his own. This surreal novel enfolds a masterful exploration of gender in taut, atmospheric mystery.

Staff Choice

When I say that The Iliac Crest is one of the most important novels to be published in our century so far, I'm not being bombastic. For a book that is, in part, about the attempted erasure of women's voices, and those of women writers in particular, it seems appropriate that it should automatically enter the canon of great contemporary fiction.

Prior to its publication, I had already read it three times and found something new to say about it on each occasion. Rivera Garza's shifting, poetic and radical treatment of gender, borders and bodies could not be more timely. We're going to be talking about this weird and ominous book for years to come.
