Dissertation: The Sick Heart of the House Explodes: Quantum Anarchy in Three Novels by Latin American Women. Spatial and temporal constructs in three works—The Island of the Dead by Lya Luft, The Hour of the Star by Clarice Lispector, and She Has Reddish Hair and Her Name Is Sabina by Julieta Campos—exemplify a postmodern and feminist shift away from Newtonian physics toward a quantum theory where time and space merge. Fragmentation and interruption effectively prevent completion in a Newtonian sense.“
