About the book:

With his characteristic technical genius, Mario Vargas Llosa counters two worlds that appear at odds with each other -our modern societies and the people that live in total harmony with the natural environment. Steering the reader in a vertiginous journey through the collective mind of the Machiguenga Indians, Vargas Llosa expounds, once again, on one of his obsessions: the role fiction plays in the life of humanity. Description in Spanish: ''La imagen de esos primitivos habladores que recorrian los bosques llevando historias de aldea en aldea me acompano urgiendome cada dia mas a fantasear una historia a partir de ellos.'' MARIO VARGAS LLOSA En esta novela, Mario Vargas Llosa contrapone con extraordinario virtuosismo tecnico dos mundos que parecen vivir enfrentados, el de las sociedades modernas y el de los pueblos que viven en armonia con la naturaleza. A su vez conduce al lector a un viaje vertiginoso por el imaginario colectivo de los indios machiguengas, que le sirve para desarrollar, una vez mas, una de sus obsesiones: el papel de la ficcion en la vida de los hombres.
