Travesuras de la nina mala by Mario Vargas Llosa

Released a few weeks ago in Peru Travesuras de la niña mala the new novel by Mario Vargas Llosa, Peruvian critics have been unanimous this book is a ambitious novel that proposes diverse perspectives on love, a state next to sanctity that allows extravagance.

Travesuras de la niña mala narrates the misadventures of Ricardo Somocurcio - Frenchified interpreter and translator from Lima - to seduce the unattainable niña mala, that thru its continuous trips, adventures and distractions, usurps lives and names of different literary characters, forcing Ricardo Somocurcio to suffer metamorphoses closer to the ones of Ovid than the one of Kafka.
