Mario Vargas Llosa Only Has Two eBooks Between Amazon and B &N

While Amazon offers 101 books by Nobel Prize-winning novelist Mario Vargas Llosa, only one is available on Kindle. At Barnes & Noble, only two books by the Peruvian author are available as eBooks.

Earlier today, novelist Mario Vargas Llosa won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Here’s more about Llosa (pictured, via) from the Nobel site: “[he was awarded] for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt, and defeat.”

Both Kindle and Barnes & Noble offer The Temptation of the Impossible, the novelist’s critique of Victor Hugo‘s Les Miserables. Here’s more from Booklist: “Vargas Llosa discerns genius in the French novelist’s artistic transmutation of such leaden terrestrial events into a golden utopian fantasy. Readers who cherish Hugo’s powerful novel will value this insightful study.”
