About Book

Meet Mario, an 18-year-old law student who precociously courts and seduces his Aunt Julia, a 32-year old divorcee. His story is interspersed with instalments of a popular radio soap-opera, broadcast from the station where Mario works and written by his friend, Pedro Camacho. This wonderfully comic and semi-autobiographical novel, set in 1950s Peru, is brought masterfully to a crescendo as the real and the imagined worlds come together in moments of violence and revelation.
