Peruvian writer and politician Mario Vargas Llosa is one of the most important authors of the last 100 years. He achieved international recognition in the 1960s with several novels, lauded for their scope, the genre implementations, and their variations on realist and postmodernist conventions. For his literary contributions, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2010. In The Notebooks of Don Rigoberto, he presents a character-driven narrative about a depraved man and his lustful memories of his estranged wife. The work stands out among Llosa’s novels for its deeply postmodernist qualities–unreliable narration, fractured events, and sexual details. For any Llosa collector, it is an essential volume.
