Walk through Luisa Valenzuela's Open Door and into a world both lush and sinister. Cat's Eye' is a glittering, fearful story, sinuous like the panther that lurks in the central character's eye, in Country Carnival we see the military-hero turned costumed surrealist arrive at the country carnival to upset the local women. In Legend Jos Maria and Maria Jos are unhappy twins in a single, gender-confused body, and aCity of the Unknown is a journey into the illusion of reality. From a dusty town in rural Argentina to the caverns of New York, Open Door admits the reader into a world of finely-crafted prose. Her black humour reveals a society dominated by male violence and militarism and shows why Luisa Valenzuela is, in the worlds of Carlos Fuentes, 'the heiress of Latin American ficition'.show more
