Vargas Llosa


Vargas Llosa

Vargas Llosa is the surname of two prominent Peruvian intellectuals who are father and son.
*Mario Vargas Llosa, born in 1936, is a novelist, journalist and essayist.
*Álvaro Vargas Llosa, born in 1966, is a writer and political commentator on international affairs.

Although the name appears to be two separate words, it is in fact a single surname, and falls alphabetically under the letter V. In a library, bookstore, bibliography or similar place, it is not correct to file the works of either of these authors under the letter L or Ll.
