The essay analyzes how the Western economic model becomes the subject of narration in Elvira Dones' Sworn Virgin and Anilda Ibrahimi's Rosso as a Bride. These two novels, published respectively in 2007 and 2008, reinterpret economic issues from a “different” point of view, giving voice to an otherness that is not only geographical, but also existential and biological. The merciless gaze of Dones and Ibrahimi focuses on the contradictions of global capitalism: the myth of Western wealth, which through the rhetoric of the media colonizes the migrant imagination, is narratively translated into the perspective of unmasking.
