Ham-Fistedness: "Cinco Esquinas" by Mario Vargas Llosa

Cinco Esquinas (HISPANICA) - Mario Vargas Llosa

(Original Review, 2016-03-05)

I'm really glad that Mario Vargas Llosa's “Cinco Esquinas” wasn't the first of his books that I've read or I'd have abandoned his work forever. An unbidden, recurring image of him hunched over his keyboard, lickerish and drooling, haunted me as I read what were surely his pollution’s nocturnes about the room-temp romps of a pair of married, fabulously wealthy, gorgeous best girlfriends, all the throbbier for the perils posed by the Fujimori regime.
