 Isabel Allende

Chilean author Isabel Allende won worldwide acclaim when her bestselling first novel,'The House of the Spirits' was published in 1982. In addition to launching Allende's career as a renowned author, the book, which grew out of a farewell letter to her dying grandfather, also established her as a feminist force in Latin America's male-dominated literary world. She has since written nearly 20 more works, including 'Of Love and Shadows', 'Eva Luna', 'Stories of Eva Luna','The Infinite Plan', 'Daughter of Fortune', 'Portrait in Sepia', a trilogy for young readers ('City of Beasts', 'Kingdom of the Golden Dragon', and 'Forest of Pygmies'), 'Zorro', 'Ines of My Soul', and 'Island Beneath the Sea'. Her books of non-fiction include 'Aphrodite', a humorous collection of recipes and essays, and three memoirs: 'My Invented Country', 'Paula'(a bestseller that documents Allende's daughter's illness and death, as well as her own life), and 'The Sum of Our Days'. Her latest book, a novel, is 'Maya's Notebook'(to be published in English in 2013). Allende's books, all written in her native Spanish, have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold more than 57 million copies. Her works both entertain and educate readers by weaving intriguing stories with significant historical events. Settings for her books include Chile throughout the fifteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the California gold rush, the guerrilla movement of 1960s Venezuela, and the Vietnam War. Allende, who has received dozens of international tributes and awards over the last 30 years, describes her fiction as "realistic literature", rooted in her remarkable upbringing and the mystical people and events that fuelled her imagination.
