Description:

If the devil exists, he is personified in the protagonist of "La Fiesta del Chivo", the latest novel by Mario Vargas Llosa. The novel is based on the last days and the assassination of one of the most tyrannical and bloodthirsty dictators of Latin American, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. The author recounts the story of Urania Cabral, a woman who fled from Trujillo's regime in Santo Domingo as a young child and returns to confront a terrifying past. A passionate story combining anger and bewilderment. It is almost unthinkable to accept the brutal happenings as real; it is easier to believe that they were only possible in the mind of the author.
