“Vargas Llosa has created a beguiling, epic romance about the life-altering power of obsession.”—Farrar, Straus and Giroux Publishers

“Splendid, suspenseful, and irresistible…a contemporary love story that explores the mores of the urban 1960s—and 70s and 80s.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Perversely charming . . . irresistibly entertaining.”—The Washington Post Book World

The Bad Girl paints a panoramic history of four decades of South American and European life, continually challenges readers’ expectations, and questions the very nature of identity, ‘goodness,’ and ‘badness.'”—Bookmarks Magazine

“Spans decades and continents—and in the process, with a deftness that borders on literary sleight of hand, bridges the personal and the universal.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“A beautifully constructed, stinging tease of a novel.”—The Seattle Times

Meeting Date: Tuesdays, February 11 and 18
