Pantaleón y las Visitadoras by Mario Vargas Llosa is an excellent book. It tells the story of a military man whose mission is to create a troop of prostitutes to visit batallions in the Amazon, in an effort to prevent the militars from attacking the women in town. It is a humorous narrative full of literary figures and a great reflection of the conditions and qualities of that society.

My favorite Hispanic Literature books are "Dreaming in Cuban" ("Soñar en Cubano") and "In the Time of the Butterflies" ("En el Tiempo de las Mariposas") by Julia Alvarez. Each of these novels depict what life is like in Cuba and the Dominican Republic respectively during different times in history. I read these books in college and they are still two of my all time favorites!
