Item Description: Jonathan Cape, London, 1969. First British edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original green cloth. Signed by Mario Vargas Llosa on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket that shows light rubbing to the spine crown. The Green House draws on Vargas Llosa's experiences growing up near a brothel in the northwestern Peruvian town of Piura. The novel, which juggles multiple plots, locations, shifting points of view, and more than 30 characters, reflects Peruvian society's vast inequalities. Critics considered it a classic "total" novel--a fusion of style, subject, and form that convinces readers that an illusory reality may be even "truer" than reality. "Mario Vargas Llosa's message seems to be that man, like the jungle, has a mysterious energy which cannot in the end be explained or subdued. His characters may be saints, villains, victims, or nothing in particular, but they break out of the pages of this magnificent novel with the stubborn uncontainability of life itself" (V.S. Pritchett, The New Statesman). Bookseller Inventory # 1573
