MONTELONGO, José. Small domestic' wrecks: chronicles of family' life in the works of Germán Dehesa'. Andamios [online]. 2011, vol.8, n.15, pp.63-80. ISSN 1870-0063.
This essay traces the genealogy of Germán Dehesa's work along the border of journalism and literature -an extension of 19thcentury costumbrismo and an instance of 20-century chronicle- and analyzes its formal and thematic peculiarities. Through the lens of humor, Dehesa's work focuses on the everyday life of middle-class families and strives to outline a new form of fatherhood, whose emergence in history is recent and whose record in Mexican literature is scarce.
