Death in the Andes

By Mario Vargas Llosa & Edith Grossman
Death in the Andes by Mario Vargas Llosa & Edith Grossman digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Plunge into the heart of the remote Peruvian Andes in Mario Vargas Llosa's stunning novel, Death in the Andes.

This narrative weaves an intricate tapestry of stark political realities, age-old Andean mysticism, and a chilling mystery that leaves no stone unturned.

The book promises a riveting blend of genres, serving as both a political allegory and a gripping detective novel. It shimmers with an undercurrent of magical realism, embroiling readers in the nooks and corners of an isolated community caught in the web of violent guerrilla warfare.

Immerse yourself in the ancient Dionysian rituals of Greece mirrored in unsettling, cannibalistic sacrifices, unveiling profound connections to Peru's Indian heritage and pre-Hispanic mysticism. The narrative's panoramic view of Peruvian society illuminates its violent present, deeply entrenched in its rich yet haunting past.

A breathtaking exploration of South American literature from Nobel Prize-winning author Vargas Llosa, Death in the Andes is a resounding tribute to Latin American literature and an unforgettable journey into the pulsating heart of Peru.

“I liked it, then I didn't like it, then it picked back up and I ended up really liking it. I kept in mind the human sacrifices of the ancient peoples of Peru and that gave the story a haunting a quality.”
