Synopsis:
When sexy, sophisticated, older Aunt Julia gets divorced from her Bolivian husband, she heads home to Peru in search of a new mate who can support her in high style. She finds instead her libidinous nephew Varguitas--a young, impoverished law student who works at a ramshackle radio station and aspires to be a fiction writer. Will their love survive the horror of the family? The shock of the community? The considerable difference in their ages? Meanwhile, a new, hotshot scriptwriter of racy radio soap operas, who turns out stories filled with murder, incest, rape, and perversion, has all of Peru listening in. Reality merges with fantasy as Mario Vargas Llosa juggles a madcap cast of characters and carouses through a world of forbidden passion, in a novel The New York Times Book Review named one of the twelve best of 1982.

Review:
"The greatest qualities of this excellent book are...its refusal ever to abandon the human dimension in a story that could so easily have become grandiose; also a sense of ambiguity....As dark as spilled blood...a modern tragedy on the grand scale."

Salman Rushdie, New Republic, 10/08/1984

Review:
"[A] powerful and haunting historical novel."

Robert Stone, New York Times Book Review, 8/12/84
