Why we love this
The Time of the Hero by Mario Vargas Llosa. New York: Grove Press, 1966. First printing. An immaculate copy, with unfaded jacket, of the acclaimed author's first novel. "The book caused a scandal in the author's native Peru, and 1000 copies were burned in an official ceremony at the Leoncio Prado Military Academy, where the novel is set. That same year the book was awarded the Biblioteca Breve Prize, an award given to the best new work of fiction in the Spanish language." A rarity.
