Synopsis: With meticulous observation, Mario Vargas Llosa lures the reader into the shadow of erotic perversion that, little by little, darkens the extraordinary happiness and harmony of the characters: the sensual Lucrecia, a 40-year-old stepmother; Rigoberto, her attentive, imaginative husband; and Alfonso, his angelic son, the personification of innocence and desire.

About the Author: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2010 ?for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual?s resistance, revolt, and defeat.? Peru?s foremost writer, he has been awarded the Cervantes Prize, the Spanish-speaking world?s most distinguished literary honor, and the Jerusalem Prize. His many works include The Feast of the Goat, The Bad Girl, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, The War of the End of the World, and The Storyteller. He lives in London.
