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

The dreams of reason : a novel by Xavier Domingo( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel is concerned with twenty-four hours in the life of a Spanish inhabitant of the Algerian sector of Paris. Sharing the only food his neighbors can afford, he has bought himself a beautiful cabbage. In his quarter the very air has become "cabbaged," every sense impregnated with this food of human privation and despair. The cabbage has absorbed the totality of the Algerian ghetto; it is the bread of those not deemed human enough to merit bread. And now, bearing his cabbage home, the narrator becomes involved in a murderous police raid in his street. Arrested with many others, he is thrown into a closed van and taken to a temporary concentration camp on the outskirts of Paris. There his entire reason, his every effort is bent on retrieving his cabbage from the hands of his tormentors. Finally in the dawn he emerges, still clutching his prize like the Grail--which like its owner has survived the night of torture and murder--to search out in triumph Adele, the Spanish mother, mistress, friend to all Spaniards in Paris, the whore forever reborn in purity and grace, life triumphant over the death of body and spirit
