Meet New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende’s 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.

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. Reseña: «Cuando Isabel Allende puso el punto final de Eva Luna, logró tatuarse un símbolo que honra su epidermis: dejó de ser chilena, peruana o venezolana, y pasó a ser intensamente latinoamericana.» Luis Sepúlveda ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "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.

Asombrarse de memoria es dificil, decia un escritor muy sabio. Si la clave de lo posible yace escondida en los modos de contar, Isabel Allende ha encontrado la formula exacta que le permite recorrer libremente esa galeria fantastica en la que la realidad ha dejado su sombra. Los Cuentos de Eva Luna invaden la vigilia con sus combinaciones magicas, sus nombres hechizados, su tranquilo discurrir en una zona exuberante atestiguada siempre por la precision de las palabras. Como la princesa Scheherezade de Las Mil y Una Noches, la narradora reina en un dominio donde la imaginacion y el talento narrativo se complementan maravillosamente.Estos son, pues, los cuentos que a Eva Luna le gusta oir y contar. Cuentos que trazan un mapa cuyo tesoro el lector descubrira con asombro.
