The present investigation will demonstrate how Fernando Iwasaki (Lima, 1961), through the implicit generic hybridation found in El descubrimiento de España, manages to make the reader smile and feel closer to his special discovery of this country, made through music, the anecdotic and his own work as historian. It will also analyze the demarcations in gender, culture and geography that are fundamental to the novel. Despite its early publishing in 1996, this book already shows the characteristic writing of the Hispanic-Peruvian author: irony, parody, autofiction and intertextuality. It is important to note the crescendo in formal and thematic resources, from the estrangement and childlike vision of the first chapters to the sarcasm with which an adult Iwasaki critics the concept of Spanish pride. It will also be noted the importance of music in this discovery, since the writer appeals to the most popular —and often, kitsch— songs of the Spanish scene to promote the conquest of humor.
