Nobel Prize winning author and political activist Mario Vargas Llosa reviews the major events of his life. Born in 1936 in Arequipa, Peru, Llosa recounts his upbringing and his struggle to bring reform to the Peruvian political system. He also discusses the circumstances and experiences that have influenced his writing, including his stay at the legendary Leoncio Prado Military Academy, which was the basis for his first novel, The Time of the Hero. English translation by Helen Lane.
