In these three plays—each introduced by the author—Mario Vargas Llosa, the internationally acclaimed novelist and a cultural and political figure in Peru, explores the complexities of Peruvian society and the writer's imagination, especially how and why stories come into being, and the relationship or fact to fiction.  The Young Lady from Tacna, Kathie and the Hippopotamus and La Chunga collected here for the first time in translations by David Graham-Young, are indispensable to our understanding of Vargas Llosa's work as a whole.
