Sumario:This work aims to investigate the ways in which childhood and writing are linked in Juan José Millás' narrative from a zombie variant. For this we focus on the analysis of two novels: El mundo and Mi verdadera historia. We argue that the emergence of a zombie childhood produces in these novels a place of agency. This place, on the one hand, interrogates the readability biopolitical regimes. On the other hand, it generates a space of enunciation where new frameworks of care and affectivity are drawn. This space of enunciation converges in the realization of writing as a possibility of life.
