Mario Vargas Llosa — the man of the hour

By now, we all know that the fantastic Mario Vargas Llosa is the Nobel Laureate in Literature for 2010. I freely admit that I have only read one of his novels,In Praise of the Stepmother, which I really enjoyed. I don’t know why I haven’t read any of his other novels. But that’s the thing with the Nobel Prize in Literature–sometimes it confirms your admiration of well-known writers, sometimes it encourages you to try a new writer, sometimes it even helps you rediscover a writer whose work you already admired.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Vargas Llosa’s work,  it’s high time you go to your nearest bookstore, and discover his genius.  Here is a list of his novels:

By the way, I borrowed that list from Wikipedia. 🙂 All of the books listed have been translated to English. His latest novel, El sueño del celta, is scheduled for English language release in 2012.
