The Bad Girl: a Novel

Peru,
© 2008.

How can an impossible romance cross borders, overcome adversities, and beat false illusions?

Throughout his professional career, Ricardo Somocurcio has linked his life with an unreciprocated but always present love that shapes his existence to unusual extremes. From an early age, and especially following his departure in 1960 from his native Peru to France, the attachment that Ricardo has professed to his beloved “Chilean girl” only lashes him with an otherwise ambivalent relationship.

With this novel, Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa eloquently mixes erotic episodes with the events of a character who accumulates incessant troubles through his search for the true face of love.

This is novel is an authentic page-turner, you don’t want to miss it!
