Waterstones Says

Mischievous and masterful, this grand comic novel from the author of The Feast of the Goat finds an 18-year-old radio news editor scandalously falling for his attractive, divorced 32-year-old relative by marriage.

Set in Peru during the 1950s, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter is the story of an 18 year old student who falls for a 32 year old divorcee.

Mario, an aspiring writer, works at a radio station that broadcasts, live each day, up to a half-dozen short-run soap operas. At the same time that the author meets his "Aunt Julia", the radio station, which had been buying scripts by weight from Cuba, hires a Bolivian scriptwriter named Pedro Camacho to write the serials.

The novel chronicles the scriptwriter's rise and fall in tandem with the protagonist's affair.
