In this revealing examination of the art of fiction writing, the well-known Peruvian novelist discloses his personal vision of his craft. Based on a series of lectures delivered at Syracuse University, these eight essays delve into what Vargas Llosa sees as a writer's raison d'etre: the transformation of lies into truth. He begins by praising Borges's contribution to Latin American literature, then chronicles the development of fiction as filtered through the history of Peruvian culture; the remaining six essays document the process of fiction writing in six of his novels. Readers will appreciate this frank approach, which provides valuable insight into the work of an artist. An important purchase for Spanish literature collections.
