"Familia, exclusión y racismo de la peruanidad: La tía Eliana" narrates a hidden and at the same time famous family history, for having been briefly mentioned in the works of Mario Vargas Llosa: that of Eliana Vargas de Lam, "of the white race," who, in 1948, was expelled from her family for marrying Lam Man Yon, "of the yellow race." The author intertwines the story of her aunt Eliana with an analysis of the excluding structures and practices of racialization in Peru based on archival documents, literature, interviews with Peruvians of Chinese descent, and research on Peruvian identity over the last two decades.
