House of Mist

A novel by

House of Mist stands as one of the first South American novels written in the style that was later called magical realism. Of this story of a young bride struggling with her marriage to an aloof landowner - and the mysteries surrounding their life together - in a house deep in the lush Chilean woods, Penelope Mesic wrote in the Chicago Tribune that Bombal showed 'bold disregard for simple realism in favor of a heightened reality in which the external world reflects the internal truth of the characters' feeling . . . mingling . . . fantasy, memory and event.'
