    Book details

The Cubs and Other Stories is Mario Vargas Llosa's only volume of short fiction available in English. Vargas Llosa's domain is the Peru of male youth and machismo, where life's dramas play themselves out on the soccer field, the dance floor, and on street corners.

The title story, "The Cubs," tells the story of the carefree boyhood of P.P. Cuellar and his friends, and of P.P.'s bizarre accident and tragic coming of age. Innovative in style and technique, it is a work of both physical and psychic loss.

In a candid and perceptive forward to this collection of early writing, Vargas llosa provides background to the volume and a unique glimpse into the mind of the Nobel Prize-winning artist.

  • By A customer on June 29, 1997

    The Cubs is a story about the life of a boy who suffers an accidental castration. The emotions of the boy can be felt and you see his change of attitude towards life. It has twists and turns that make The Cubs unpredictable and interesting. The story revolves around the boy and his group of friends from school. The other stories range from different topics but most of them are short but detailed at the same time. Most of them will leave you satisfied and looking for more book by Vargas Llosa.reviewed by Mauricio de la Garza
