Summary
  • Guatemala, 1954. El golpe militar perpetrado por Carlos Castillo Armas y auspiciado por Estados Unidos a través de la CIA derroca el gobierno de Jacobo Árbenz. Detrás de este acto violento se encuentra una mentira que pasó por verdad y que cambió el devenir de América Latina: la acusación por parte del gobierno de Eisenhower de que Árbenz alentaba la entrada del comunismo soviético en el continente. Tiempos recios es una historia de conspiraciones internacionales e intereses encontrados, en los años de la Guerra Fría, cuyos ecos resuenan hasta la actualidad. Un suceso que involucró a varios países y en el que algunos verdugos acabaron convirtiéndose en víctimas de la misma trama que habían ayudado a construir. En esta novela apasionante, que conecta con la aclamada La Fiesta del Chivo, Mario Vargas Llosa funde la realidad con dos ficciones: la del narrador que libremente recrea personajes y situaciones, y la diseñada por aquellos que quisieron controlar la política y la economía de un continente manipulando su historia
  • Publisher Annotation: Guatemala, 1954. The military coup perpetrated by Carlos Castillo Armas and supported by the United States via the CIA topples the government of Jacobo Árbenz. Behind this violent act is a lie passed off as the truth, which changed the development of Latin America: the accusation by Eisenhower's government that Árbenz encouraged the spread of Soviet communism in the Americas. Fierce Times is a story of international conspiracies and conflicting interests in the time of the Cold War, the echoes of which are still felt today. A story involving several countries, in which some persecutors end up as victims of the very plot they helped construct. In this thrilling novel, which is connected to the acclaimed La Fiesta del Chivo (The Feast of the Goat), Mario Vargas Llosa fuses reality with two fictions: that of the narrator who freely recreates characters and situations, and the one designed by those who would control the politics and the economy of a continent by manipulating its history. In the words of Pilar Reyes, director of the Literature Division of Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, "Tiempos recios (Fierce Times) is one of Mario Vargas Llosa's great novels, and its publication will spark a profound conversation about the power games between the United States and Latin America. An important book that Alfaguara is proud to publish." Peru, 360pp
