Cinco esquinas es l. a. nueva y esperada novela del Premio Nobel de Literatura Mario Vargas Llosa.
«Él había pensado que, después de todo, un periodista puede ser a veces útil. "Y también peligroso", concluyó. Tuvo el presentimiento de que nada bueno saldría de esta visita. »
«La proposal de esta novela comenzó con una imagen de dos señoras amigas que de pronto una noche, de una manera impensada para ambas, viven una situación erótica. Luego se fue convirtiendo en una historia policial, casi un mystery, y el mystery se fue transformando en una especie de mural de los angeles sociedad peruana en los últimos meses o semanas de los angeles dictadura de Fujimori y Montesinos. Me gustó los angeles proposal de que los angeles historia se llamase Cinco esquinas como un barrio que, de alguna manera, es emblemático de Lima, de Perú y también de los angeles época en los angeles que está situada l. a. historia.
»Si hay un tema que permea, que impregna toda los angeles historia, es el periodismo, el periodismo amarillo. los angeles dictadura de Fujimori utilizó el periodismo amarillo, el periodismo de escándalo, como un arma política para desprestigiar y aniquilar moralmente a todos sus adversarios. Al mismo tiempo, también está los angeles otra cara, cómo el periodismo, que puede ser algo vil y sucio, puede convertirse de pronto en un instrumento de liberación, de defensa ethical y cívica de una sociedad. Esas dos caras del periodismo son uno de los temas centrales de Cinco esquinas. »
