  • Description: This work intends to analyze the novel Lata peinada [2008] by Ricardo Zelarayán, which shows a recovery of the uses of narrative experimentation in the tradition of Macedonio Fernández' antinovel and of the writing mode with variations as practiced by Leónidas Lamborghini. These filiations, eminently rooted in the literary history of the Río de la Plata, are articulated with linguistic uses that try to subtly imitate oral forms typical of Northwest Argentina, where the stories narrated take place. In this sense, Zelarayán's writing allows us to analyze the curious choice of an author who struggled for many years to place himself in the literary field of the city of Buenos Aires and who put forward a style interweaving strong metropolitan traditions [Macedonio, Cortázar, Lamborghini] with outstanding -though less renowned- authorial figures from the provinces [Manuel J. Castilla, Jacobo Regen]
