The Green House was put up across the river from the city of Puira at the edge of the desert. The townspeople laughed at the odd-looking structure and the stranger who had come into the town to build it. But when it was finished and its first tenants had arrived, the citizens of Puira stopped laughing. For some, it became a night-time pleasure oasis in the desert. For others it became the very incarnation of the Devil - an evil that had to be destroyed at any cost.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mario Vargas Llosa s classic early novel takes place in a Peruvian town, situated between desert and jungle, which is torn by boredom and lust. Don Anselmo, a stranger in a black coat, builds a brothel on the outskirts of the town while he charms its innocent people, setting in motion a chain reaction with extraordinary consequences.This brothel, called the Green House, brings together the innocent and the corrupt: Bonificia, a young Indian girl saved by the nuns only to become a prostitute; Father Garcia, struggling for the church; and four best friends drawn to both excitement and escape.The conflicting forces that haunt the Green House evoke a world balanced between savagery and civilization -- and one that is cursed by not being able to discern between the two.
