Fronteras, espacios híbridos, escrituras mutantes en Norte de Edmundo Paz Soldán y Tukzon, historia

Abstract : Since the recovery of democracy in Bolivia in 1982 after several decades of authoritarian governments, the image of a literature enclosed within its boundaries has been diluting. Bolivian novelists are fully participating in globalisation. Many of them, like Edmundo Paz Soldán, reside abroad and are approaching and developing other themes which are very far from traditional localism or regionalism. This work focuses on two examples, Edmundo Paz Soldán's Norte and Giovanna Rivero's Tukzon, historias colaterales, two novels which are set in a transition space—the border between the United States and Mexico—to tell stories of uprooted, alienated, “intensely strange” characters as Claudia Bowles writes about Giovanna Rivero's novel. This article focuses in particular on the narrative techniques used to create this hybrid and nightmarish universe.
