Some writers in recent Peruvian narrative are immersed in a process of subverting the traditional binary system of thought and language that controls our Western societies. That enterprise entails a relationship among the three lines of investigation that articulate this thesis: identity, gender and prison space. Jaime Bayly and Carmen Ollé are two examples of this deconstructive practice that brings with it a new way of defining contemporary Lima and its inhabitants. The present study aims to demonstrate that deconstructive task, while at the same time, emphasize a progression that seems to inaugurate a new narrative trend in contemporary Peruvian literature.
