Description
This haunting tale of power, corruption, and the complex search for identity during the Peruvian dictatorship of General Manuel A. Odrķa was originally written in 1969, and is one of Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa's major works. Conversation in the Cathedral takes place in a bar and brothel in 1950s Peru. Over beers and a sea of freely spoken words, the conversation flows between Santiago Zavala, the son of a minister, and Ambrosia, his driver, both describing their tormented lives and the overall degradation and frustration that has slowly taken over their town.
