Summary (From the publisher):

When sexy, sophisticated, older Aunt Julia gets divorced from her Bolivian husband, she heads home to Peru in search of a new mate who can support her in high style. She finds instead her libidinous nephew Varguitas - a young, impoverished law student who works at a ramshackle radio station and aspires to be a fiction writer. Will their love survive the horror of the family? The shock of the community? The considerable difference in their ages? Meanwhile, a new, hotshot scriptwriter of racy radio soap operas, who turns out stories filled with murder, incest, rape, and perversion, has all of Peru listening in.
