This copy of "The Storyteller" has been SIGNED by Mario Vargas Llosa on the title page! From his appearance at the New York Public Library on May 14th, 2018. The book follows the destiny of the Peruvian Jew Saul Zuratas--an outsider by ethnicity and by appearance--and imagines his transformation from a conscience-stricken modern man obsessed with the survival of the pre-modern peoples of the Amazon into a member of the Machiguenga tribe; indeed, their chronicler, their voice. Part Dostoevsky's Prince Myshkin, part a character out of Kafka, Saul is one of the most moving and extraordinary people Vragas Llosa has ever created, an incarnation of conscience in a consciousness time. Always an able cartographer of the modern, in "The Storyteller" Vargas Llosa depicts a world we have lost, the world of our origins.
