The Latin American narrative of the last twenty years presents a series of important changes, among which motherhood stands out as one of its main themes. However, this experience is not spoken of in terms of exaltation, but rather it is subjected to a series of questions, questioning whether it is a practice that women naturally develop when they become mothers. This article aims to demonstrate that a recurring social character appears in this narrative: the non-normative mother, understood as that female individual who cannot or does not want to follow the mandates that society imposes on women to be recognized as mothers. To achieve our objective, we will analyze three fundamental novels that belong to this corpus: Los ingrávidos (2011), by Valeria Luiselli, La perra (2017), by Pilar Quintana, and Casas vacías (2020), by Brenda Navarro.
