VIEIRA, Willian. A pact with the devil: Divórcio, by Ricardo Lísias, as a manual to understand autofiction. Estud. Lit. Bras. Contemp. [online]. 2017, n.51, pp.182-204. ISSN 2316-4018.

The article analyses how Divórcio, by Ricardo Lísias, can be seen as a manual to understand the specificity of autofiction. The book features all the "tools" that characterize the genre. It delineates, didactically, the play between the indefinite fictional status and the ethical dimension of a reception based on the author's performance, within and outside of the text itself. From this uncertainty regarding the status of the text and the performatic play, in which the reader is an active player, the novel allows the author to defend a new autonomy of the literary practice.

Keywords : autofiction; fictional status; performance; reader; ethics; Ricardo Lísias.
