Item description for Elogio de la Madrastra by Mario Vargas Llosa...

Vargas Llosa nos induce sin paliativos a dejarnos prender en la red sutil de perversidad que, poco a poco, va enredando y ensombreciendo las extraordinarias armona y felicidad que unen en la plena satisfaccin de sus deseos a la sensual doa Lucrecia, la madrastra, a don Rigoberto, el padre, solitario practicante de rituales higinicos y fantaseador amante de su amada esposa, y al inquietante Fonchito, el hijo, cuya angelical presencia y anhelante mirada parecen corromperlo todo. La reflexin mltiple sobre la felicidad, sus oscuras motivaciones y los paradjicos entresijos del poder putrefactor de la inocencia, que subyace en cada una de sus pginas, sostiene una narracin que cumple con la exigencias del gnero sin por ello deslucir la rica filigrana potica de la escritura.

Vargas Llosa introduces us to the subtle web of perversity surrounding Lucrecia, the sensual step-mother, Rigoberto, the father and an imaginative lover to his wife, and Fonchito, the son. A fascinating interplay between innocence and perversity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Elogio de la Madrastra?

Awesome!! One I could read again!  Dec 2, 1998
I read it for the first time years ago, and now that I am older, I wish to re-read. This one is one of those I wished I had bought and not borrowed!
Peru's man of letters explores his naughtier side  Nov 18, 1996
Mario Vargas Llosa writes his first erotic novel. Somethemes in this book reflect those of his more serious work.This novella is in part a commentary on race and class. . . especially the upper class. . . in modern Peru. Mostly, however, this story of a pre-adolescent boy's sexual attraction to his stepmother pokes fun at sexual mores of the Peruvian elite and and the sexual idiosyncracies of the characters. Vargas Llosa's narrative skill is very much in evidence here; the craft of this book will please readers of his better-known works. Published in Engish as In Praise of the Stepmother.
