2010 Nobel Literature Laureate

The 2010 Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Mario Vargas Llosa from Arequipa, Peru.

Llosa was chosen “for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt, and defeat”.

Wikipedia Bio:

Jorge Mario Pedro Vargas Llosa (born March 28, 1936) is a Peruvian writer, politician, journalist, essayist, and Nobel Prize laureate. Vargas Llosa is one of Latin America’s most significant novelists and essayists, and one of the leading authors of his generation. Some critics consider him to have had a larger international impact and worldwide audience than any other writer of the Latin American Boom. He is the person who, in 1990, “coined the phrase that circled the globe”, declaring on Mexican television, “Mexico is the perfect dictatorship”, a statement which became an adage during the following decade.
