Literature on and from Peru

Thinking about coming to Peru? Interested in Peru? Bored? 

Want to read about this Andean country?

Here are some good non-fiction books I've found:

The Peru Reader, edited by Robin Kirk and Orin Starn
The Last Days of the Incas, by Kim MacQuarrie
The Monkey's Paw, by Robin Kirk
Cocaine: White Gold Rush in Peru, by Edmundo Morales

Or if you're looking for literature, Mario Vargas Llosa and Jaime Bayly are two excellent contemporary Peruvian writers:

Death in the Andes, by Mario Vargas Llosa
Conversation in a Cathedral, by Mario Vargas Llosa
Don't Tell Anyone, by Jaime Bayly
