The paper focuses on the particularities of an auto biographical work, Norman Manea's The Hooligan's Return. In this work, the writer uses elements that are considered as defining for this type of writing and dramatic innovations in the way of organising the narrative material. An original idea Manea develops in a metaphorical way is that the native space is subsumed to the language space. This idea acquires complex meanings in this autobiographical text, built by evocation and intertextualization.
