INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE JAPANESE LOVER A captivating collection of short fiction by one of the most beloved writers of our time Eva Luna is a young woman whose powers as a storyteller bring her friendship and love. Lying in bed with her lover, European refugee and journalist Rolf Carlé, Eva answers his request for a story 'you have never told anyone before' with these twenty-three samples of her vibrant artistry. Interweaving the real and the magical, she explores love, vengeance, compassion and female power, depicting worlds that are at once poignantly familiar and intriguingly new. Rendered in her sumptuously imagined, uniquely lyrical style, The Stories of Eva Luna is a cornerstone of Isabel Allende’s work, and in her character Eva Luna she creates a modern-day Scheherazade. 'Eva Luna's stories are delicate, their images akin to poetry . . . Perfectly crafted and thematically rich' Barbara Kingsolver 'Vital and compelling' The Times 'Arresting and altogether distinctive, powerful and haunting; a collection to be read aloud and repeated for generations' Los Angeles Times 'Enchanting, magnificent. Absolute magic on every level' Cosmopolitan

En Eva Luna, su tercera novela, Isabel Allende recupera su país a través de la memoria y la imaginación. La cautivadora protagonista de esta historia constituye un nostálgico álter ego de la autora, que se llama a sí misma "ladrona de historias" precisamente porque en las historias radica el secreto de la vida y el mundo. Novela de hondo perfil humano, Eva Luna funde el destino individual con el colectivo mediante una fulgurante prosa de carácter épico. Sin duda, una de las mejores obras de la literatura latinoamericana de los últimos años.

"Isabel Allende is often praised for creating heroines that liberate themselves from oppression, often through their freedom of sexuality. In her collection of short stories, The Stories of Eva Luna, the female protagonists are intelligent, sensual, creative and resourceful, but far from being liberated, they are entrapped by this freedom. This is illustrated in "Toad's Mouth," "The Judge's Wife," and "Simple Maria." An initial reading of these stories may support the idea that the protagonists in these three tales are liberated and living lives of their own choosing; however, a deeper analysis reveals that the women are not free but are, in fact, imprisoned. Hermelinda is the only women for hundreds of miles around and is extremely free with her sexuality. She makes a living charging for sexual exploits with any man who comes into her home and pays to play her games. As she manipulates the games to her advantage, she imagines that she has the power over her partners, home, her life and the men in her realm. Contrary to appearances, however, Hermalinda is disempowered by her sexual freedom. In "The Judge's Wife," Casilda comes to the area as a mail order bride to bring prestige and power to the judge. Instead she appears to hold the power over him, and he changes so drastically that the entire town notices and is thankful to her for her influence over the judge. In the end, when the judge and his family are fleeing his rival, Nicolas Vidal, she uses her sexuality to save her family. Although it seems that sexual freedom is Casilda's salvation, it is actually her condemnation. In "Simple Maria," Maria has an innocent mind as the result of a train accident when she was a young child. She is able to care for herself and her child, so she is self-sufficient but is treated by her family as if she is incompetent and sold off to an elderly, ailing man who dies shortly after their wedding. She finds that she loves sex and it is the only thing that brings her pleasure and spends all her time waiting for partners and in the sex act. She becomes a world renowned prostitute with men lining up to receive her services. She spends her entire life waiting without ever finding true love or happiness. While Maria gives the illusion that she happy in her life of meaningless encounters, she is disillusioned by the lack of happiness she has found in her sexual freedoms."--Abstract.

Farbiger und lebenswirklicher könnte Isabel Allendes Roman nicht sein. Vor dem Hintergrund der historischen Sklavenaufstände in der Karibik schildert sie das packende Schicksal der Mulattin Zarité, die als junges Mädchen an einen weißen Plantagenbesitzer verkauft wird. Durch vielfache persönliche Bande an die Familie ihres Herrn gekettet, muß Zarité ihren ganz eigenen Weg finden, um endlich Freiheit zu erlangen. Mit ihrem neuen Roman Die Insel unter dem Meer entführt uns die chilenische Bestsellerautorin von den Zuckerrohrplantagen auf Saint-Domingue, dem heutigen Haiti, in das pulsierende New Orleans des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts. Ein schillernder, dramatischer Bilderbogen um eine starke Frau, die alles riskiert und sich bedingungslos ihre Freiheit erkämpft.

“A remarkable novel” (The Washington Post) from New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende’s introducing her most enchanting creation, Eva Luna: a lover, a writer, a revolutionary, and above all a storyteller. Eva Luna is the daughter of a professor’s assistant and a snake-bitten gardener—born poor, orphaned at an early age, and working as a servant. Eva is a naturally gifted and imaginative storyteller who meets people from all stations and walks of life. Though she has no wealth, she trades her stories like currency with people who are kind to her. In this novel, she shares the story of her own life and introduces readers to a diverse and eccentric cast of characters including the Lebanese émigré who befriends her and takes her in; her unfortunate godmother, whose brain is addled by rum and who believes in all the Catholic saints and a few of her own invention; a street urchin who grows into a petty criminal and, later, a leader in the guerrilla struggle; a celebrated transsexual entertainer who instructs her in the ways of the adult world; and a young refugee whose flight from postwar Europe will prove crucial to Eva's fate. As Eva tells her story, Isabel Allende conjures up a whole complex South American nation—the rich, the poor, the simple, and the sophisticated—in a novel replete with character and incident, with drama and comedy and history, with battles and passions, rebellions and reunions, a novel that celebrates the power of imagination to create a better world.
