… Mario Vargas Llosa.
From Wikipedia, we learn that his name is prounouced: “[Ë?maÉ¾jo Ë?Î²arÉ£az Ë?Ê?osa]” Thank you very much Wikipedia, that was so xweÊ?ul.
Anyway, Vargas Llosa wrote La ciudad y los perros, La casa verde, 1965/1968), and the ConversaciÃ³n en la catedral.
Many of Vargas Llosa’s works are influenced by the writer’s perception of Peruvian society and his own experiences as a native Peruvian. Increasingly, however, he has expanded his range, and tackled themes that arise from other parts of the world. Another change over the course of his career has been a shift from a style and approach associated with literary modernism, to a sometimes playful postmodernism.*
