“Colectficción: sobrepasando los límites de la autoficción”/ “Colectficción: Surpassing the Limits of Autofiction” (Iberoamericana/Vervuert, 2022), a book written by Priscilla Gac-Artigas, Ph.D., professor of Spanish and Latin American Literature in the Department of World Languages and Cultures, was reviewed in Vol. 11 Núm. 20 (2023) of the Latin American Literary Criticism Journal “Catedral Tomada,” a University of Pittsburgh Open Library publication. The review was written by Mónica Barrientos, Ph.D., professor of Latin American literature at the Universidad Autónoma de Chile.
In her review, Barrientos concludes: “I am convinced that Gac-Artigas’ book is an essential contribution that delves into the collective idea of writing as a political act to ‘recover the forgotten idea of the common good, […] through works that share the experiences of a society, inviting the reader to experiment with the reconfiguration of reality in fiction (p. 22) that is not conceived as singular, but plural.’”
