Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A multifaceted journey that is geographical, personal and political . . . A complex, nuanced view of United States–Latin American politics and relations of the last forty some years." — Durham Herald-Sun

"One of the most important voices coming out of South America." — Salman Rushdie

In September 1973, the military took power in Chile, and Ariel Dorfman, a young leftist allied with President Allende, was forced to flee for his life. In Feeding on Dreams, Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and with startling honesty, the personal and political maelstroms that have defined his life since the Pinochet coup. Dorfman’s wry and masterfully told account takes us on a page-turning tour of the past several decades of North-South political history and of the complex consequences of revolution and tyranny, excavating for the first time his profound and provocative journey as an exile and the consequences for his wife and family.

"Fascinating." — San Francisco Examiner

"A great book that will simultaneously undo us and sustain us." — Tikkun

Synopsis:

Acclaimed author and human-rights activist Ariel Dorfman delivers a memoir excavating, for the first time, his profound and provocative journey through revolution and exile.

Synopsis:
