Item description for El pez en el agua by Mario Vargas Llosa...

This work by the renowned Peruvian author allows us to glimpse into the key years of his youth until his candidacy for President of Peru. These are stark, unadorned truths revealed through his hypnotic and masterly prose. The strained relationship between the author and his harsh, violent father; the discovery of his calling as a writer as a means to oppose parental authoritarianism, the precocious bohemia, the hasty wedding with "la ta Julia" ("aunt Julia") and the short, yet intense, political career of the writer. Description in Spanish: La obra del escritor peruano se sustenta en numerosos acontecimientos personales que transcurrieron en su juventud. La difcil relacin con un padre duro y violento, el nacimiento de la vocacin de escritor como oposicin a esa autoridad, los aos del colegio militar Leoncio Prado, la precoz vida bohemia, la precipitada boda con la ta Julia o la existencia real de La casa verde. Adems, y a modo de contrapeso, conocemos la corta pero intensa carrera poltica del escritor. Esos tres aos que transcurrieron desde la improvisada movilizacin popular de la Plaza de San Martn en oposicin a la poltica de Alan Garca hasta la definitiva derrota ante Fujimori.

Reviews - What do customers think about El pez en el agua?

Una gran obra, no se podia esperar menos.  Jan 18, 2008
A lo largo de esta autobiografia, MVLL describe al Peru como dos naciones. Una, bien conocida por el, la clase media criolla que vota a su favor en las elecciones del 90. La otra, los pobladores del peru profundo y pobres de Lima, que terminan definiendo la eleccion votando en contra de el.

La novela tambien esta dividida en dos. Los capitulos impares corresponde a la vida personal de MVLL, desde que conoce a su padre hasta su viaje a Paris para volverse escritor. En esta parte, MVLL describe la influencia que los libros tienen en el, su paso por la prensa escrita y su actividad como izquierdista en la universidad. Los capitulos pares describen sus peripecias politicas mientras fue candidato presidencial, el desarrollo del plan de gobierno, las dificultades para liderar su alianza politica y su derrota en las elecciones.

Para esta novela, MVLL usa lo que se siempre ha sido una pasion peruana, sino lationamericana : el chisme. El libro esta repleto de ellos. De esta manera, terminan "pagando el pato" reconocidos economistas, periodistas, ex presidentes, animadores de tv, entre muchos otros.

Este libro te captura desde el primer parrafo. No pude parar de leer hasta llegar al final. Es imposible no encarinharse con algunos de los personajes, incluso algunos a los que MVLL intenta hacer quedar mal, como su padre o el cardenal.

Disfrutenla.
