Mario Vargas Llosa with Prof Efraín Kristal and Prof Michael Wood FBA

Mario Vargas Llosa in conversation with Professor Efraín Kristal (UCLA) and Professor Michael Wood FBA (Princeton University) on 6 June 2012 (venue: The Royal Society).

Mario Vargas Llosa is one of the world's greatest contemporary novelists, a playwright of distinction, and a leading public intellectual. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010. He discussed his latest novel, The Dream of the Celt, published by Faber and Faber in June 2012. This novel deals with key moments in the life of the Irish nationalist, Roger Casement - especially his denunciation of human rights abuses in the Congo and in the Peruvian Amazon - as he awaits execution for treason in 1916. Mario Vargas Llosa will also consider his work in a broader context by exploring issues raised in The Cambridge Companion to Mario Vargas Llosa, edited by Efraín Kristal and John King.
