Writer #1: Isabel Allende


Daughter of a diplomatic, born in Lima (Perú) in 1942. Niece of Salvador Allende, former president of Chile murdered at the coup d´etat by Augusto Pinochet.

Her first novel "The house of the spirits" was written in 1982 and later made into a movie, starred by Jeremy Irons.

From "the writers´s workshop" by Francis Amalfi.

Here´s my page about her. Rather about my reaction to her writing.
Journaling reads:
I finished reading The house of the spirits in February 1985, four days before my birthday. From the plot I remember nothing except that there was a scene of romance and loss that made me cry, cry and cry. I never read anything written by IA again.
