    The Feast of the Goat (La Fiesta del Chivo)

    Mario Vargas-Llosa's story of General Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, "The Goat" himself, who subdued the Dominican Republic in a cruel dictatorship from 1930 — 1961. The story is told by Urania, a New York lawyer whose father was part of Trujillo's Ministry, who returns to the Dominican Republic after 35 years; by the band of conspirators who plan his assassination; and through the thoughts of the dictator himself. The Feast of the Goat received critical acclaim and won the Pen American Center's Nabokov Prize, among others. Vargas-Llosa responded with great enthusiasm, writing to Repertorio Espanol that "the adaptation by the Trianas has achieved the difficult task of being faithful to the facts and the spirit of the novel, and is at the same time very theatrical."
