What happens when transvestite ‘make world’? On Camila Sosa Villada’s Las malas
Text read at the presentation of Las malas, by Camila Sosa Villada, on March 21, 2019
Keywords:Camila Sosa Villada, Argentinian contemporary novel, Biopolitics, Transvestite body
The text, delivered orally at the first presentation of Camila Sosa Villada’s 2019 novel, works as a timely and evocative long review, focusing on the author’s profound reconfiguration of the canonic representations of the transvestite universe within the Latin American context. The focus, here, falls on language, the mischievous language of the protagonists that, intertwining transphobic testimony and baroque imagination, fictionally reconfigures the limits of the real.
