‘Escritores de envergadura’: Gendering Bestsellers in Claudia Piñeiro’s ‘La muerte y la canoa’ and ‘Bendito aire de Buenos Aires’

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article explores the figure of the bestselling author in two short stories by contemporary Argentinian writer Claudia Piñeiro. Using the masculine concept of the ‘escritor de envergadura’ as a starting point, it analyses the protagonists of ‘La muerte y la canoa’ and ‘Bendito aire de Buenos Aires’ – both published in Quién no (Buenos Aires: Alfaguara, 2018) – to draw conclusions about Piñeiro’s critique of the gendered world of the publishing industry.
