The recent Brazilian literature production takes place in a national environment of democratic crisis inserted in a global progressive capitalism. Under this shape, the boom of the existing post dictatorial rule novel comes about, which emanates in 2014 (year of the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 coup) and it consolidates itself in 2016 (year of the coup against the president Dilma Rouseff). Therefore, this novel is the result of the market dynamic constituted of neoliberal and neoauthoritarian marks, mainly, monetary. This context is not a gap in Brazilian history, however, it is the amount of historical fragments over the past, which the culminating point was the military regime in 1964. Thus, this proposal is to delineate possible signs that could explain the relationship and influences among literature, democracy and the publishing market. In other words, this project intends to highlight how speeches that support Brazilian politics over the last years and global economics shape the publishing market of the post dictatorial current novel. The relation among Brazilian democratic weakness, neoliberal (hyper)globalization and current fiction withstands the researching project of Professor Leila Lehnen. Therefore, our hypothesis is that the dynamics of publishing current post dictatorial novel work as of a mediatic and market base "imaginary control" (COSTA LIMA, 2007; 2009). Based on Lehnen readings one could call it monetary violence, being the output of global economic context and a determined national policy both inserted into the publish market while "speech-endowed institution" (SALGADO, 2016).
