What era does Mexican Gothic take place?
Set in a remote mining town in 1950s Mexico, at first blush, Mexican Gothic doesn’t seem like the ideal setting for a traditional gothic tale. However, Moreno-Garcia expertly creates a cloying, dreary, and ghastly ambiance.
What is the conflict of Mexican Gothic?
Noemí instantly falls into conflict with Catalina’s husband Virgil, the Doyle heir, over her desire to have Catalina evaluated by a psychiatrist, though Virgil grudgingly agrees to her demands. However, Noemí does find kindness and companionship in Francis, Florence’s son.
Is Mexican Gothic dark academia?
It combines all my favourite elements of gothic suspense but brings the genre into the modern age with glimpses of horror and dark academia. It is the book I am going to gift to pretty much everyone I know because I adored this so much.
