Reviews - What do customers think about La verdad de las mentiras?

Essays, a guide, and the truth of lies ....  Jan 25, 2004
"La verdad de las mentiras" contains many essays written by Vargas Llosa, regarding books that made a permanent impression on him. For example, he wrote essays on "The heart of darkness" (Joseph Conrad), "Dubliners" (James Joyce), "Manhattan Transfer" (John Dos Passos), "Mrs. Dalloway" (Virginia Woolf), "The great Gatsby" (F. S. Fitzgerald), "Nadja" (André Breton), "The human condition" (André Malraux), "Animal farm" (George Orwell), "Doctor Zhivago" (B. Pasternak), and many more...

Not only are those essays very interesting to read, due to the fact that his prose is incredibly fluent, but they also allow you to know something about the books you haven't managed to read yet, turning this book into an useful guide :)

"La verdad de las mentiras " ("The truth of lies") includes an introductory essay, where Vargas Llosas reflects on literature, life, and what kind of truth can be found in the "lies" that authors like him write. He says, for example, that "Una ficción lograda encarna la subjetividad de una época y por eso las novelas, aunque cotejadas con la historia mientan, nos comunican unas verdades huidizas y evanescentes que escapan siempre a los descriptores científicos de la realidad".

If you can, read this book. It's well worth it :)
