Into Magical Realism
An interview with Lily Iona MacKenzie
Realism is the foundation of the story. It is set in the real world and in real time, with magical elements thrown into the mix. This is the genre of writing that Lily prescribes to.
‘Curva Peligrosa’ is a bold and striking Mexican woman, who refuses to conform to stereotypical gender roles and is a trail blazer. Literally! As she makes the tough journey along the Old North Trail from Mexico through to Canada, and sets down roots in a mythical town of ‘Weed’ in Alberta.
