Synopsis:

The War of the End of the World is one of the great modern historical novels. Inspired by a real episode in Brazilian history, Mario Vargas Llosa tells the story of an apocalyptic movement, led by a mysterious prophet, in which prostitutes, beggars and bandits establish Canudos, a new republic, a libertarian paradise.

'A bold work of force and power, a tragic masterpiece with something of the sweep and freedom of the great novels of the nineteenth century.' Listener

'A vast, fantastic . . . Thunderous novel.' The Times

Product Description

Review:
'Remarkable . . . thrilling to read.' -- Sunday Times

'Scarcely one of Vargas Llosa's pages fails to grab and fascinate . . . Above all Vargas Llosa captures the confusion of battle and the dizzy incomprehension of those involved.' --Sunday Telegraph

'A bold work of force and power, a tragic masterpiece with something of the sweep and freedom of the great novels of the nineteenth century.' --The Listener

'Powerful and haunting . . . Vargas Llosa's work is of such scope, his handling of the big questions so confident and intellectually exciting, that one hesitates to fault him.' --New York Times
