Mario Vargas Llosa is a heterogeneous writer whose positions have often not been consistent from novel to novel, between his fictional and nonfictional work, between his literary and political commentary, and as his political commentary has proceeded over the decades. This analysis of his work reveals his insights into socio-political matters.

Biography Artist:
Juan E. De Castro is an associate professor of Literature at Eugene Lang College, The New School for Liberal Arts. He is author of Mestizo Nations: Culture, Race, and Conformity in Latin American Literature (2002).
"Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa won the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature. Just in time to recognize that honor, Castro and Birns (both, the New School) provide 11 essays outlining Vargas Llosa's part in literature's insurrection in modern culture... The essays elegantly balance one another, leaving the reader with the vision of an erudite, cultured man whose energies and interests explain the variability of his documentary vision and whose 'incendiary' views like those of Sartre, Camus, and Grass will be assessed positively because of Vargas Llosa's commitment to the debate of ideas in contemporary culture... Recommended.'
