¡Vargas Llosa!

Finally the Swedish Academia shows some common sense and gives the Nobel Prize to a great author, Mario Vargas Llosa. He is, no doubt about it, the best intellectual we have in Spanish language. So, if you haven't read it, hurry up.

Long live Vargas Llosa, a true member of the liberal tradition and a fighter for democracy and social justice, who has also a big passion for literature and for our Spanish language. Tiger as he is, he is married to a beautiful woman, Patricia.

You might want to check an interview by Revista Ñ, and also my review of a lecture/booklet on Literature and Politics he gave in my city some years ago, both en español.
