His second book is a non-linear narrative that takes place in the Amazon with events and people around the notorious Green House, a bordel in a small hammock in the jungle created by Don Anselmo also harmonica player amd painted, well, green.

Trafficking and abuse of women abounds alongside the exploitation of Indian tribes along the Santiago and Nieves Rivers by soldiers, bootleggers, and smugglers. Nearly everyone is corrupt including the nuns who Another masterpiece from Vargas Llosa.

Nearly everyone is corrupt including the nuns who welcome girls kidnapped from Indian tribes, taught Spanish and housekeeping and then sent one way or another as "inmates" of the Green House. The narration drifts from one perspective to another with the time freely moving as well back and forth over the lives of the protagonists - and like Conversation in the Cathedral which followed this book, sometimes the timeline even changes between sentences. The one downside is that once again, as in The Time of the Hero and The War at the End of the World, all of the female characters are prostitutes or religious nuns and are not given quite the depth of the male characters with the possible exception of Bonifacia.

But then, I believe she was Wildflower too so a prostitute. Perhaps it is just particularly sad that the sexploitation here of enslaving Indian girls is more shocking that in War at the End of the World because this book is taking place in the s rather than the s. I suppose that if the way Amazonian Indians by Peruvians and Brasilians is accurate to even a small degree, it is hardly surprising that a populist, left-leaning terrorist movement in the name of native rights such as the Sentero Luminoso could become such a threat to Peru 30 years later.

Well, I did manage to put up with this for 2 entire weeks, perhaps this is the most difficult of all his books having read like half of the MVL library, almost. How difficult?

There reigns chaos, and following the rules of the modernist novel the characters have a limited set of possibilities for leading the lives that they truly covet. There is first, second, and third person narration here; there are skips through time and interesting plays of focalization.

Sure, the effect of fragmentation and richness is truly captured here; the hard part is keeping in mind all the different conventions Llosa constructs and destroys, the hard part is not getting lost. One gets the sense that the reader will never get to the bottom of this, that he will never know the truth. The clash of the classes had never fallen victim to this kind of miscommunication and fragmentation before: like a true work of art the theme is therefore fully realized.
