Mario Vargas Llosa in conversation with Alonso Cueto, Efrain Kristal (UCLA) and Maria Luddy (University of Warwick), chaired by John King (University of Warwick).
Mario Vargas Llosa is one of the world’s greatest contemporary novelists, a playwright of distinction and a leading public intellectual. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010. He will be discussing his latest novel, The Dream of the Celt, to be published by Faber and Faber in June 2012. This novel deals with key moments in the life of the Irish nationalist, Roger Casement – especially his denunciation of human rights abuses in the Congo and in the Peruvian Amazon - as he awaits execution for treason in 1916. Mario Vargas Llosa also considers his work in a broader context by exploring issues raised in The Cambridge Companion to Mario Vargas Llosa, edited by Efrain Kristal and John King.
