In Elogio de la Madrasta ("In Praise of the Stepmother"), Vargas Llosa
took up the erotic novel, introducing the sensual stepmother Do?a Lucrecia and her husband, Don Rigoberto. This is the second part of Elogio. Each night, in order to keep his marriage to Lucrecia from becoming stale, Don Rigoberto conjures erotic fantasies. These musings, which he writes down in his notebooks, transport him in space and time, allowing him to explore subjects ranging from politics to the arts in an eloquent display of language. Vargas Llosa is at the top of his craft, deftly combining wit and style in a work that will delight and captivate readers.?Jorge Gonzalez
