Abstract

The aim of this article is to analyse how Agustín Fernández Mallo (La Coruña, 1967) represents our globalised world in his novel Nocilla Dream (2006). His way of conceiving reality as a web, in fact, allows him to experiment with flexible narrative mixing materials proceeding from different sources. The result is a complex map of our contemporary way of life, based on global relationships and digital technologies. Precisely with the intent of defining that map and the strategies followed by the author in its creation we coined the neologism ‘heterotopography’, combining the Foucauldian concept of ‘heterotopia’ and the term ‘topography’ with all its meanings.
El presente trabajo profundiza en la representación que Agustín Fernández Mallo (La Coruña, 1967) brinda del mundo globalizado en su novela Nocilla Dream (2006). De hecho, la conciencia de que nuestra realidad se construye a través de unas relaciones en red, le permite crear un espacio narrativo apto para acoger un acopio heteróclito de materiales, logrando trazar un mapa articulado de nuestra contemporaneidad global y digital. A partir de ahí se ha intentado definir tanto el plano trazado por al autor como su manera de proceder recurriendo al neologismo ‘heterotopografía’, surgido de la fusión del concepto foucaultiano de ‘heterotopía’ y del término ‘topografía’ en su doble acepción.
