Sommario/rassunto: My dissertation focuses on the fictional representation of the Spanish-language literary industry and the narrative construction of the author as a conflicted character who struggles within the space between artistic aspirations and the demands of celebrity. I examine narrative works by authors from three transatlantic categories: Latin American writers who left their home country and established themselves in Spain, Spanish writers who travelled abroad after Francisco Franco's death and who are now internationally renowned, and Chilean authors who started writing during or just after the Pinochet dictatorship. The exploration from a transatlantic perspective of such a diverse set of writers and nationalities shows the various similarities that these Hispanic literary authors and works share despite their differences in regard to their national, history, politics or ideals. At the same time, it confirms the existence of a new profile of postnational authors whose narrative work incorporates original features from globalized pop culture and other artistic media such as film or live performances. Following recent tendencies in Hispanic literature including metafictional texts written by famous artists and celebrities, my dissertation aims to deploy innovative critical approaches informed by postmodernism, border studies, and gender studies. While the narrative works examined deal with the fictional representation of some of the most important structural aspects of the transatlantic literary field--including prizes, book fairs, and literary conferences--they also portray the personal attachment of writers to new and powerful contributors to the literary field such as judges, critics, literary agents, and fans. The vision of authorial celebrity that these authors offer in their work involves a Hispanic literary industry beholden to a new scenario where, as Pierre Bourdieu has described, money and power have overshadowed artistic and creative concerns.
