Why, for what and how does a journalist write? What is his vocation made of and what gives it meaning in these times? Works Zone brings together columns, conferences and essays that the Argentinean Leila Guerriero put together around these questions and that, published in various media or read at literary meetings in Latin America and Spain, are collected for the first time in a book. The result is a mural in which each piece points to the heart of the craft, illuminates it and, at the same time, questions it: how and when is the drive to write born? Why is it worth taking a journalistic text to its maximum expressive potential? This is a book about non-fiction writing, but also about cinema, comics, plastic arts, childhood, Madame Bovary, Africa, parents and reading, and it breathes, in each of its pages, the conviction that journalism is not a minor genre but a literary genre in itself.
