Mario Vargas Llosa Won’t Run for Office Again

Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa does not intend to run for political office again. When he was 54-years-old,  Llosa ran against Alberto Fujimori for Peru’s 1990 presidential election.

While collecting his 10 million Swedish crown ($1.46 million) Nobel Prize for Literature, Llosa addressed the topic. The author (pictured, via Morgana Vargas Llosa) currently serves as a visiting professor at Princeton University.

A Reuters article had this quote from Llosa: ”We had practically a civil war … we had hyper-inflation … It was because of those circumstances that I had the necessity of political participation. I certainly won’t repeat this experience.” (Via Book Bench)
