The Creation of Eve

Federico Jeanmaire

NOVEL. TUSQUETS 2018. 232 PAGES.

In his novel The Creation of Eve, Federico Jeanmaire lets his characters speak: on one side the transsexual Maruja who needs help from God and for whom everything, even the language, is feminine. On the other side, the priest Jorge, who cannot believe his ears and interprets sassy Maruja's life as a long list of sins that need to be confessed and repented. With this setting, Jeanmairetargets the very topical themes of transgenderism, personality, Catholicism and their places in contemporary society with a large dose of sex, humour and cynicism, reminiscent of a young Pedro Almódovar.
