There’s a new novel being released by a Nobel prize winner.
Mario Vagas Llosa’s “The Discreet Hero” is set in the author’s native Peru.
The story revisits two cities that were influential in his past – the Peruvian capital Lima and the northwestern city Piura.
The author says Peru’s economic development over the past several decades is a key theme for the novel.
Vargas Llosa lives in Madrid.
The 77 year old writer won the 2010 Nobel prize for literature.
