The Dream of the Celt by Mario Vargas Llosa.. The great novels give you sentences that mount up like waves, all rhythm and muscle, and that power of turning words into living, breathing story is everywhere in this novel.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"In the star-studded world of the Latin American novel, Mario Vargas Llosa is a supernova."

The Wall Street Journal

"Mario Vargas Llosa has long been a literary adventurer of the very first order . . . [He], I am convinced, can tell us stories about anything and make them dance to his inventive rhythms."

The Independent

Author bio: Mario Vargas Llosa was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2010 “for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt, and defeat.” Peru’s foremost writer, he has been awarded the Cervantes Prize, the Spanish-speaking world’s most distinguished literary honor, and the Jerusalem Prize. His many works include The Feast of the Goat, The Bad Girl, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, The War of the End of the World, and The Storyteller. He lives in London.
