Read full description of the books:Auf ihrem Posten in den peruanischen Anden sitzen Korporal Lituma und sein Helfer Tomás wie in einer Falle. Unter ständiger Bedrohung durch Terrorkommandos und eine gewalttätige Natur sollen sie das mysteriöse Verschwinden dreier Menschen aufklären. Überall schlägt ihnen Mißtrauen entgegen, unheimliche Geschichten dringen an ihr Ohr. Hätte Tomás nicht die brennende Erinnerung an seine abenteuerliche Liebesgeschichte mit Mercedes, von der er Lituma Nacht für Nacht erzählt, die beiden müßten eingehen in dieser feindseligen, abergläubischen Bergwelt. So abweisend das Klima und so verstörend die Bruchstücke der Wahrheit, die sie nach und nach ans Licht bringen, sie lassen nicht locker. Was in den Bergen geschah, hat die Ausmaße eines unfaßbaren Dramas.
Read information about the authorMario Vargas Llosa, born in Peru in 1936, is the author of some of the most significant writing to come out of South America in the past fifty years. His novels include The Green House, about a brothel in a Peruvian town that brings together the innocent and the corrupt; The Feast of the Goat, a vivid re-creation of the Dominican Republic during the final days of General Rafael Trujillo’s insidious regime; and Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, a comedic semi-autobiographical account of an aspiring writer named Marito Varguitas, who falls in love with Julia, the divorced sister-in-law of his Uncle Lucho.
He is also a widely read and respected essayist, writing everything from newspaper opinion pieces to critical works on other writers, including The Perpetual Orgy on Flaubert.
Vargas Llosa is also active outside the literary arena, and was a serious contender for the presidency of Peru in 1990 (eventually losing to the now disgraced Alberto Fujimori), an experience he documented in his memoir, A Fish in the Water.
On the controversial nature of some of his work he said, “The writer’s job is to write with rigor, with commitment, to defend what they believe with all the talent they have. I think that’s part of the moral obligation of a writer, which cannot be only purely artistic. I think a writer has some kind of responsibility at least to participate in the civic debate. I think literature is impoverished, if it becomes cut from the main agenda of people, of society, of life.”
He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for the year 2010, "for his cartography of structures of power & his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt, and defeat".
