Description

An exotic dance that beguiles and entices... The enchanted and enchanting account of a  contemporary Scheherazade, a wide-eyed American  teller-of-tales who triumphs over harsh reality  through the creative power of her own imagination...




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.




Praise For Eva Luna

"Imaginative, original, convincing, pointed, and  spiced with good humor and wit." --  San Francisco  Chronicle.

"Remarkable... a cascade of stories tumbles out  before the reader, stories vivid and passionate and  human... Allende seems to draw characters and  tales from a bottomless well as Eva Luna narrates  the story of her life." --  Washington Post Book World.

"An  epic tale... Eva matures and comes to love a  Turkish merchant, a guerrilla fighter, and a German  immigrant... [in] this romantic confection of a  novel." -- People
