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
