If the devil exists, he is personified in the protagonist of “La Fiesta del Chivo”, the latest novel by Mario Vargas Llosa. The novel is based on the last days and the assassination of one of the most tyrannical and bloodthirsty dictators of Latin American, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. The author recounts the story of Urania Cabral, a woman who fled from Trujillo's regime in Santo Domingo as a young child and returns to confront a terrifying past. A passionate story combining anger and bewilderment. It is almost unthinkable to accept the brutal happenings as real; it is easier to believe that they were only possible in the mind of the author.

Pantaleon Pantoja, a recently promoted army captain, is entrusted with a top secret mission to establish a prostitution service for the Armed Forces of Peru. As a faithful soldier, Pantaleon transfers to Iquitos in the middle of the jungle, to carry out his mission. His enthusiasm, however, endangers the very scheme he has put in motion. Thus begins this novel, which was published in 1973 and later made into a film. Vargas Llosa uses this theme to highlight the hypocrisy of so-called exemplary institutions and of the oldest profession in the world. The eternal debate between truth and lie, necessity and virtue, and the pernicious consequences of rigorous adherence to duty are the fundamental values of this satirical and extraordinary novel.
