Sinopsis: Don Rigoberto - insurance executive by day, pornographer and sexual enthusiast by night - misses his estranged second wife. As he compensates for her absence by filling notebooks with a steamy mix of memory and sexual fantasy, readers are drawn into his confusion between imagination and reality.
A classic Vargas Llosa tale of art and desire ... It reaffirms Mario Vargas Llosa's reputation, alongside Gabriel Garcia Marquez, as one of South America's finest contemporary writers. ( The Times)
Beautifully written, funny, erudite and seriously anarchic. ( Time Out)
Vargas Llosa's complex, gorgeous prose ... sweeps the reader into a rich confusion of art and fact, fiction and reality, where there are no vices and the only virtue is imagination. (Walter Kendrick The New York Times Book Review)
His funniest and most relaxed novel since Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter. ( Observer)
Vargas Llosa is boldly pushing back the boundaries of imaginative fiction explored by a Spanish tradition dating back to Don Quixote. It is a hugely ambitious work, ... which succeeds in teasing as much as entertaining ... This latest work from one of Latin America's most compelling writers is an achievement as impressive as it is disturbing. ( Daily Express)
Exuberant ... A roguish and sophisticated sex comedy with a few brain teasers tipped in. ( Time)
