The time of the hero by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

605 editions published between 1926 and 2020 in 13 languages and held by 4,620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scene: a pitch-black lavatory after lights-out at the Leoncio Prado Military Academy in Lima, Peru. Four cadets are drawing lots for the night's mission. Their objective: the captain's office. Their target: to steal a copy of the next day's chemistry examination. In this microcosm, this city within a city, a group of cadets form still another circle in their attempt to break out of the vicious round of sadistic hazing, military discipline, confinement, and boredom. The cadets' rebellion is led by the Jaguar, an aloof, tough boy who refuses to be initiated and treated as one of the Dogs. Under his leadership seven cadets, later reduced to four, join forces to fight the system by smuggling in pisco and cigarettes, running midnight poker games in the latrine, selling answers to examinations, stealing or mutilating uniforms. The Poet, regarded as the class brain, writes and sells pornographic stories; the Boa, their sex hero, wins the contests they hold in their hide-out; and the Slave is their built-in scapegoat. But what began as pranks in their First Year turns into tragedy by the time the boys reach the Third Year -- the point at which the novel opens. The officers' discovery of the theft of a crucial final exam sets off a cycle of betrayal, murder, and revenge which jeopardizes the entire military hierarchy. Moving back and forth from past to present, from inner thought to outer action, from within the Academy to the city outside, Vargas LLosa exposes the sordid world of the military elite, with its hypocrisy, moral decay, and power politics, and the corruption throughout the society beyond the Academy walls

Mario Vargas Llosa's novel takes place in a Peruvian town, situated between desert and jungle, which is torn by boredom and lust. Don Anselmo, a stranger in a black coat, builds a brothel on the outskirts of the town while he charms its innocent people, setting in motion a chain reaction with extraordinary consequences. This brothel, called the Green House, brings together the innocent and the corrupt: Bonificia, a young Indian girl saved by the nuns only to become a prostitute; Father Garcia, struggling for the church; and four best friends drawn to both excitement and escape. The conflicting forces that haunt the Green House evoke a world balanced between savagery and civilization - and one that is cursed by not being able to discern between the two

The storyteller by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

160 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 3,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a small gallery in Florence, a Peruvian writer stares with fascination at the photograph of a tribal storyteller deep in the jungles of the Amazon. He is overcome with the eerie sense that he knows this man ... that the storyteller is not an Indian at all, but his old school friend, Saúl Zuratas. As recollections of Zuratas - a Jew, a perpetual outsider - flow through his mind, the writer begins to imagine Zuratas' transformation from a modern man to a central member, the voice and the chronicler, of the primitive unacculturated Machiguenga tribe. Weaving the mysteries of identity, storytelling, and truth, Vargas Llosa has created a spellbinding tale of one man's journey from the modern world to the world of our origins, abandoning one in order to find the meaning in both."--Back cover
The bad girl by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

179 editions published between 2005 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 3,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The protean Lily, inspired liar and irresistible muse - will Ricardo ever learn who she really is? The answer is as unclear as what has become of Ricardo himself, a lifelong expatriate shadowed by the sense that he is only ever drifting. With this brilliantly poignant and intimate new novel, Vargas Llosa has created both a beguiling romance about the power of obsession and a moving meditation on the vicissitudes of individual lives lived against the ever-changing backdrop of history."--Page 4 of cover

"In 1916, the Irish nationalist Roger Casement was hanged by the British government for treason. Casement had dedicated his extraordinary life to improving the plight of oppressed peoples around the world--especially the native populations in the Belgian Congo and the Amazon--but when he dared to draw a parallel between the injustices he witnessed in African and American colonies and those committed by the British in Northern Ireland, he became involved in a cause that led to his imprisonment and execution. Ultimately, the scandals surrounding Casement's trial and eventual hanging tainted his image to such a degree that his pioneering human rights work wasn't fully reexamined until the 1960s."--Jacket

La Fiesta del Chivo by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

177 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vargas Llosa, Premio Nobel de Literatura y Pr?ncipe de Asturias de las Letras, relata el fin de una era dando voz al impecable e implacable general Trujillo, apodado el Chivo, y al sosegado y h?bil doctor Balaguer (sempiterno presidente de la Rep?blica Dominicana). Uno de los mejores libros en espa?ol de los?ltimos 25 a?os seg?n Babelia. ¿Por qu? regresa Urania Cabral a la isla que jur? no volver a pisar? ¿Por qu? sigue vac?a y llena de miedo desde los catorce a?os? ¿Por qu? no ha tenido un solo amor? En La Fiesta del Chivo (2000) asistimos a un doble retorno. Mientras Urania visita a su padre en Santo Domingo, volvemos a 1961, cuando la capital dominicana a?n se llamaba Ciudad Trujillo. All? un hombre que no suda tiraniza a tres millones de personas sin saber que se gesta una maquiav?lica transici?n a la democracia. Con un ritmo y una precisi?n dif?cilmente superables, este peruano universal muestra que la pol?tica puede consistir en abrirse camino entre cad?veres, y que un ser inocente puede convertirse en un regalo truculento. Mejor novela espa?ola del siglo XXI seg?n los expertos consultados por el diario ABC. Rese?as: "Mario Vargas Llosa ha vuelto a la novela hist?rica con el arte acumulado tras su ya extenso periplo literario. El resultado es un libro espl?ndido, de lo mejor que ha dado su innegable talento." Joaqu?n Marco, El Cultural de El Mundo "Una estructura perfectamente engarzada, donde el desarrollo de las tres l?neas argumentales se refuerza sostenidamente a un ritmo apasionante de thriller pol?tico e intriga dram?tica." Fietta Jarque, Babelia "Esta novela atrapar? a todo aquel que caiga en sus fauces. El fest?n narrativo organizado por el autor invita a continuar insomne hasta el?ltimo lamento de esperanza final ... podemos disfrutar, una vez m?s, de un talento torrencial, el que se vierte en las voces y acontecimientos de una obra llena de incertidumbres morales." Andr?s Magro, Diario 16 "El doctor Vargas Llosa ha escrito mucho m?s que la historia de un magnicidio ... Esta es la vuelta triunfal a su mejor literatura." Javier Aparicio, El Peri?dico de Catalunya "Plet?rico de imaginaci?n, t?cnica narrativa y altura de pensamiento, vuelve el mejor Mario Vargas Llosa con La Fiesta del Chivo, una feroz cr?tica de la tiran?a impuesta por Trujillo a la Rep?blica Dominicana y una excepcional novela sobre la corrupci?n que envuelve cualquier forma absolutista de ejercicio de poder." Francisco Garc?a P?rez, La Nueva Espa?a
