Peruvian Nobel Prize winner, Mario Vargas Llosa turns 80 – and there’s much reason to celebrate, including the publishing of his new novel. And there’s also new romance in his life after 50 years of marriage.
Pilar Reyes, publishing director of Alfaguara, said that Mario Vargas Llosa refuses to think that the best years of his life are over.
“He will refuse to do so against any evidence. I think that’s a conviction in his life, and it is what gives him his energetic attitude,” Reyes said.
Those who personally know the writer say that he is approaching his golden years as actively as possible while feeling truly happy. The reason behind this joy is a new love in his life – one for which he divorced his wife, Patricia Llosa, after 50 years of marriage. DW.com
