My name is Ana Requena Fuentes, and I recently completed my Master’s degree in Literary Studies at the University of Amsterdam with a focus on Spanish. During these studies I became fascinated by postmodernism and the detective novel, and therefore my thesis was oriented towards that genre. Since Latin American literature comprises an interesting mosaic of social and historical themes that blends really well with fiction, I decided to explore the works of promising contemporary authors, finding in the novel El Anticuario by Gustavo Faverón Patriau a challenging theme: the concept of memory as a narrative thread which unites the characters, their own dramas, as well as the recent history of Peru providing the novel a force in its structure, and moreover, implying an intellectual challenge for the reader. I was able to complete the thesis successfully thanks to the supervision of Professor Shelley Godsland of Spaanse taal en cultuur.
