About the Author

Born in Peru, Isabel Allende is Chilean. She was a journalist for many years and began to write fiction in 1981. The result was the worldwide bestseller The House of the Spirits, which was followed by the equally successful Of Love and Shadows. Her other books are Eva Luna and The Stories of Eva Luna. Long a resident of Caracas, she now makes her home in San Rafael, California, where she is completing a new book.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

CorreLola, September 25, 2007 (view all comments by CorreLola)
Allende may not be considered to be on a par with Latin American writers like Garcia Marquez, Amado or Vargas Llosa, but her books are nonetheless entertaining and moving. Born a “mestiza” (of mixed racial ancestry ancestry), Eva Luna goes from one surrogate family to the next, encountering and befriending everyone from drag queens to inventors. More than any other Allende heroine, Eva Luna stands out as strong, compassionate and independent. Her adventures take her from city to province and her lovers include a deformed but tender Arab and a childhood friend turned revolutionary guerrilla. Allende acknowledges that she created Eva Luna without a clear physical description, as she is meant to represent every Latin American woman who dares to live uncompromisingly.
