In Praise of the Stepmother: A Novel

Mario Vargas Llosa, Helen Lane

Language: English

Pages: 160

ISBN: 0312421303

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

With meticulous observation and the seductive skill of a great storyteller, Vargas Llosa lures the reader into the shadow of perversion that, little by little, darkens the extraordinary happiness and harmony of his characters. The mysterious nature of happiness and above all, the corrupting power of innocence are the themes that underlie these pages, and the author has perfectly met the demands of the erotic novel, never dimming for an instant the fine poetic polish of his writing.
