'A comic novel on the grand scale written with tremendous confidence and verve. Mario, 18-year-old law student and radio news-editor, falls scandalously for his Aunt Julia, the 32-year-old divorced wife of a cousin, and the progressively lunatic story of this affair is interwoven with episodes from a series of radio soap-operas written by his friend Pedro Comacho. Llosa's huge energy and inventiveness is extravagant and fabulously funny.' New Statesman

He returned to Lima in 1974, although he makes regular trips to Europe.Always politically outspoken, from 1976 to 1979 Llosa served as President of PEN.
