In Praise of the Stepmother

(1990)
A novel by

 
 
With meticulous observation, Mario Vargas Llosa lures the reader into the shadow of erotic perversion that, little by little, darkens the extraordinary happiness and harmony of the characters: the sensual Lucrecia, a 40-year-old stepmother; Rigoberto, her attentive, imaginative husband; and Alfonso, his angelic son, the personification of innocence and desire.
