(AP) Nobel-winning author Mario Vargas Llosa is unveiling his new novel, titled "The Discreet Hero" and set in his native Peru.


The novel revisits two influential cities in Vargas Llosa's past, the Peruvian capital Lima and the small northwestern city of Piura.


Vargas Llosa told reporters Wednesday that the plot centers on a small business owner from Piura who is an extortion victim, and a rich Lima entrepreneur whose children want to kill him.


The author said Peru's economic development over the past several decades is also a key theme for the novel.


Vargas Llosa is now 77 and lives in Madrid. He won the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature.
