    You can't win 'em all Captain Pantoja's Special Service is a brothel for the Peruvian army in the ian basin The book is a mixture of satire and slapstick comedy but not really even close to the writing uality on The Time of the Hero The Green House or Conversation in the Cathedral that proceeded it or Aunt Julia and The War at the End of the World which succeeded it I only found it marginally humorous and could not help but be put off by its outright misogyny Whatever I will still conti
