Description

This title examines the works and literary careers of two of Spain's most commercially successful contemporary female authors: Almudena Grandes (Madrid, 1960-) and Lucia Etxebarria (Valencia, 1966-). This study analyzes how the values inscribed in the authors' literary universes highlight the ambiguous fragility of constructions of identity and gender. In addition to its examination of these two celebrated Spanish female writers, this work provides a sociological reflection on the different strategies deployed by Grandes and Etxebarria to develop their literary careers. The work sheds light on the progressive entwining of market and cultural production within the Spanish literary scene over the last twenty years. Under such circumstances the overt assumption of visibility by Grandes and Etxebarria emerges as a double-edged sword: on the one hand, the symbolic incorporation of female writers within the literary arena is increased; and, on the other, the process of questioning and resistance to androcentric paradigms affected by both authors becomes vulnerable.
