Isabel Allende, one of the world’s most widely read Latin American writers, is a Chilean novelist who, like Gabriel García Márquez, was strongly influenced by her grandparents. Her vivid fiction, such as The House of the Spirits, blends realism with magical elements and spotlights political and often feminist concerns. Here is a wonderful introduction to Isabel Allende that will help readers understand how her family and upbringing set the stage for her life’s work and success.
