Congratulations to Mario Vargas Llosa
It's good to see that one of my favourite authors has been awarded this year's Nobel prize for literature.
I would rate The War at the End of the World and Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter among my favourite novels.I am very fond of many other of his works too.
It was a delight for me in 1988 o 89 when working the passport controls at Heathrow's Terminal 3 to have him come to my desk.... One of those "I'm not worthy" moments!
As for politics? A polite agreement to differ is order....
