Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter Summary


Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter by Mario Vargas Llosa

'A comic novel on the grand scale written with tremendous confidence and verve. Mario, 18-year-old law student and radio news-editor, falls scandalously for his Aunt Julia, the 32-year-old divorced wife of a cousin, and the progressively lunatic story of this affair is interwoven with episodes from a series of radio soap-operas written by his friend Pedro Comacho. Llosa's huge energy and inventiveness is extravagant and fabulously funny.' New Statesman
