The stories of Eva Luna
Isabel Allende
Adult Fiction ALLENDE

Comments  Summary  Contents  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Twenty-three lyrical and inventive tales spun by Chilean writer Allende's own version of Scheherazade. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Born in Chile but now living in Northern California, Allende is the first female Latin American novelist to become well-known to the American reading public. Her novels-- The House of the Spirits ( LJ 4/15/85), Of Love and Shadows ( LJ 5/1/87), and Eva Luna ( LJ 10/15/88)--are frequently compared to those of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The title character of the third book narrates the 24 stories in this collection, which, though scattered with familiar names, places, and images, is an independent work, not a sequel. Allende employs the techniques of Latin American magical realism to create a vivid world full of humor, passion, pathos, and color. Highly recommended. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/90.-- Mary Margaret Benson, Linfield Coll . Lib., McMinnville, Ore. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
