About Author

  1. Mario Vargas Llosa Miguel Serras Pereira says:
    Mario 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 cmillan author mariov

    The Irish Independant did not exaggerate on the back cover when they say this book makes for page turning reading that entertains, educates, and horrifies in almost equal parts The story of the Trujillo regime and the chaos surrounding his assassination is told by Urania, daughter of one of his intimates who was disgraced shortly before the fatal evening, the Generalissimo himself with his failing prostate , and several of the conspirators as they wait on a lonely road for his Chevy to appear to [...]

    One Flawless Masterpiece As a reader you cannot ask for This dense and complex novel about the Trujillo Era in the D.R like the best novels, from Gone with the Wind to The Human Stain, explains not only the steps leading to a total devastation, but, braver still, its equally about the eventual aftermath The Feast of the Goat is unputdownable, remarkable A sturdy and sure classic Read THIS Not much can be said, without sounding as though I am somehow WORTHY of even critiquing this

    Render unto God what is God s and unto Caesar what is Caesar s.But what if Caesar thought he was God Well then, I guess he d want it all.And so goes the story of Rafael Trujillo, power hungry dictator of the Dominican Republic for a period of thirty years until his brutal assassination in 1961 Feast of the Goat tells the story of Trujillo s reign using a blend of fact and fiction, centered on the fateful day that would end an era Varied narratives blend together seemlessly to give us a portrait [...]






  6. Chris_P says:
    One thing I learned from The Feast of the Goat is that short memory is a universal characteristic of people of all times Dictators turn from tyrants to saviors in no time and villains become heroes when the new political situation demands it People simply accept the regimes like they accept the changes of the weather, with the only difference being the fact that, many times, they re under the illusion that they had the choice Which I guess they had but not in the way they think they had it Disil [...]

  8. AC says:
    This magnificent little book is page turner It is a plot driven work that analyzes the rule and the assassination and the consequences thereof of Rafael Trujillo, the dictator of the Dominican Republic from 1930 1961 The book has an unlikely hero to reveal the name here would constitute a spoiler and, obviously, an anti hero Trujillo himself.But the book is than mere plot, for the plot functions as a vehicle for the analysis of a host of highly individuated characters characters of great depth [...]

  9. Praj says:
    I find the expression benevolent dictator quite acerbic paradoxical in fact The exclusive benefactor of populous land a leader who promises to the countrymen a utopia Thomas Moore s unicorn , stands on the world pedestal portraying duplicitous cultural patriotism while butchering every free voice that fails to meet his egotistical standards and motives Questions stumble upon patriotic validities Who do we call a true loyalist of a country The leader who cogently assumes the role of a saviour bes [...]

  10. William1 says:
    Mr Llosa can write I won t dispute that But this is not a good novel for me for the following reasons 1 The author has bitten off far than he can chew in a mere 400 pages The scope of the book is vast and too much feels rushed He might have narrowed his scope, but alas he wants it all Because of the enormous narrative breadth, this reader never got the level of satisfaction in the area of character development that he would have liked there are so many characters and after a while they all seem [...]

    Lo primero que puedo decir acerca de este libro es que estoy deslumbrado Mis expectativas acerca de la narrativa de Mario Vargas Llosa han sido sobrepasadas El talento acerado del Nobel de Literatura 2010 nos conduce a trav s de la vida, las costumbres, los excesos, la crueldad y el car cter de algunos personajes notables de un periodo especialmente importante para la Rep blica Dominicana La acci n sucede durante la tir nica y d spota dictadura de Rafael Le nidas Trujillo, el cruel personaje que [...]

    This book tells us the story of Rafael Trujillo, who ruled Dominican Republic for 30 years It tells us about the rise and fall of the man was brutal, power hungry, cruel, and would stop at nothing to remain in power He was assassinated in 1961.Story is told by Rafael himself Urania, daughter of very influential political figure, and the assassins Author has merged all these PoV beautifully With a right mix of reality and fiction we get to see the insecurities that Trujillo felt in his last few d [...]

    Espectacular Vargas Llosa me tiene maravillada La verdad que doli leer este libro Algunas veces tuve que cerrarlo porque no pod a seguir leyendo del horror que sent a y la angustia que me generaba Pero es un golpe de realidad y por eso duele, porque estas cosas pasaron y muy cerca Tremendo libro.


  14. Nathan "N.R." Gaddis says:
    I wasn t naive about Llossa going in I had been informed that he wasn t of the innovative ilk What I was naive about going in was my familiarity with what literary fiction actually looks like Because, well, I don t read literary fiction I read novels But.It is what it is I ve been creepy enough about it in my Status Updates I was disappointed I d heard, too, it said that he writes in a plain style But I found it not plain but artless Plain style requires artifice 2666 is written in a plain style [...]
