The Time of the Hero

Mario Vargas Llosas first novel, The Time of the Hero (La ciudad y los perros) was publiced 1963, and tells about Mario Vargas Llosas own experiences from the Lima's Leoncio Prado military Academy.

The debut was an immediate success and his technique was highly praised by critics, although the military directed sharp criticism. Many highly ranked generals in the Peruvian army called it a work of a "degenerate mind", and blamed Vargas Llosa to have been paid to write it by the Ecuador to blacken then Peruvian army.
