Isabel Allende

The doyenne of Latin American fiction, Isabel Allende is a Chilean author whose evocative novels defy easy categorisation. A tender letter to her dying grandfather morphed into Allende’s iconic debut novel, The House of the Spirits, published in 1982 to international acclaim. A bewitching family saga that bent the magical realist form to her own very singular vision, the novel also reflected issues of social justice that have been a lifelong concern for Allende. She has since produced over twenty novels, including the vivid picaresque and American Book Award winner Eva Luna and the historical feminist epic Daughter of Fortune.

The great Chilean writer discusses her own lifelong feminism and the understanding that it has brought about what women really desire, alongside hard-won life lessons for the current generation of young women finding their voices.

Sweeping and lyrical, Allende’s multi-generational epic traces a richly evocative path through forty years of authoritarian rule in Spain, as witnessed by a group of disparate characters. Suffused with the author’s trademark brand of magical realism and a vibrant sense of time and place, A Long Petal of the Sea is vintage Allende.
