Book Review: Latin American Documentary Narratives: The Intersections of Storytelling and Journalism in Contemporary Literature
Latin American Documentary Narratives reflects the robust journalism of the 1960s journalists whose stories present different creative approaches the journalists had to take within censored environments, using literary strategies to reproduce real testimonies. The movements of the Peronist era during the 20th and 21st centuries, like the Tacuara Nationalist Movement and the National Justicialist Movement, have put a halt on journalism and the publication of free press stories in the newspapers, forcing writers to employ metaphors and allegories to indicate the facts. Chávez Diaz’s work provides a glimpse into political instability in the form of narratives, through which she provides insightful research that enriches the readers’ knowledge about recent historical events.
