Abstract summary : This thesis examines the presence of autobiographical references in Bryce Echenique's works of fiction and the problems and misunderstandings that have arisen in the act of reading as a result of the inclusion of these personal elements. Chapter 1 places Bryce Echenique within the broad context of Latin American literature, especially the "Post-boom," and discusses the principal theories of autobiography. This chapter then traces the root of the problem of autobiographical reference in Bryce Echenique's novels to his own way of writing. His narrative is characterized by a strong element of orality, both the result of the author's technical achievement and the cause of misreadings of his work.

At the Sorbonne he studied classic and contemporary French literature between and Then, Bryce decided to remain in France and taught Spanish language in a Paris school from to The next year, he became a professor of Latin American literature at Paris Nanterre University and since at the Sorbonne.

The novel, which has since been translated into ten languages, tells the story of a young boy who grows up as the youngest of four children of a rich, Peruvian upper-class family.
Although Julius actually belongs to the ruling classes he feels a stronger bond with the servants which surround him and this brings him into conflict with his family. With biting irony the author exposes, through the eyes of a child, the great social differences in Peruvian society. Un mundo para Julius marks for Bryce Echenique the start of an extremely productive literary career, in which he has until today written nearly twenty novels and story volumes. Largely in the form of letters, the novel relates the story of the hindered romantic relationship between a poor Peruvian troubadour and the daughter of an influential Salvadoran family.

Bryce has also been accused of plagiarizing articles by Graham E.

Bryce Echenique, Alfredo 1939-
No me Esperen en Abril tells the love story of a couple, Manongo and Tere, who fell in love at an early age and not even time changed the way they felt for each other. He can make you laugh, fall in love with his characters, and even make you look for them in Lima. He uses this city as a stage, which makes him and his work so special. The book describes friendship, or better yet the importance of friendship. Tragic, dreamer, shy and stubborn, but unlike some who prefer to hide it or show it, he just wears ugly sunglasses to give it life. With time he was hit by his own destiny — Tere got married. Manongo ran away, became so powerful in his own head to destroy the man who took the love of his life away, but the truth is that Manongo did it himself with his constant drama.
