About this book
Enthralling and inspiring biography of the Chile-born novelist. Allende paints a colourful picture of her homeland, detailing events such as the assassination of her cousin, the president Salvador Allende, in Pinochet's military coup, with the same skill found so readily in her novels. "She has everything it takes: the ear, the eye, the mind, the heart, the all-encompassing humanity" "New York Times"
The life story of Isabel Allende - one of the world's favourite writers - is as exotic, passionate and inspiring as one of her novels.
