The Time of the Hero [The City and the Dogs].
London: Jonathan Cape. 1959 - FIRST UK EDITION. Octavo, pp.409. Publisher's hardcover in original dust-wrapper. No inscriptions or price-clipping. A clean, fine copy. The Nobel-winning Peruvian writer's first novel, set among the cadets at the Leoncio Prado Military Academy in Lima, which he attended as a teenager. The novel portrays the school so scathingly that its leadership burned a large number of the first (Spanish language) copies and condemned the book as Ecuadorian propaganda against Peru. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
