In 1963, Peruvian Nobel Prize-winner Mario Vargas Llosa published his first novel, "La ciudad y los perros." His work drew the attention of critics and the public alike, turning him into an overnight success. However, his fame also came with controversy and scandal. "La ciudad y los perros: biografía de una novela" recounts the vicissitudes his first novel passed through. Throughout this reconstruction, biographical details about Llosa are also revealed, and larger cultural movements and political events -- such as the Latin American boom, censorship and the Cuban revolution -- are illuminated.

Reconstrucción de las peripecias por las que pasó la primera novela del esceritor peruano Mario Vargas Llosa (Arequipa, 1936), ganadora del premio Biblioteca Breve en 1962, y el Premio Nobel peruano.
