Isabel Allende

‘Ik heet Eva. Ik ben geboren in een achterkamer van een naargeestig huis en opgegroeid tussen oude meubelen, boeken in het Latijn en mummies van mensen. Toch ben ik daar niet melancholiek door geworden want ik ben ter wereld gekomen met in mijn geheugen een vleugje oerwoud.’ In een stijl die even krachtig en kleurrijk is als het Zuid-Amerikaanse landschap van regenwouden, ruige bergen en verdorstende woestijnen, vertelt Isabel Allende het adembenemende verhaal van het bizarre en fantastische leven van Eva Luna. Ze voert de lezer mee naar een exotische wereld waarin werkelijkheid en verbeelding naadloos in elkaar overgaan.

Isabel Allende

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.

İspanyolca

En 'Eva Luna', su tercera novela, Isabel Allende recupera su país a través de la memoria y de la imaginación. La cautivadora protagonista de este libro es un nostálgico «alter 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 del mundo. Como una moderna Scherezade, Eva Luna convierte su vida en una tragicomedia por la que desfila una sorprendente galería de personajes: un embalsamador de cadáveres, una madrina que sobrevive a una decapitación, una mujer con cuerpo de hombre, un fotógrafo austríaco atormentado por los recuerdos del nazismo... Con ternura e impecable factura literaria, Isabel Allende perfila el destino de sus personajes como parte indisoluble del destino colectivo de un continente marcado por el mestizaje, las injusticias sociales y la búsqueda de la propia identidad. Este logrado universo narrativo es el resultado de una lúcida conciencia histórica y social, así como de una propuesta estética que constituye una singular expresión del realismo mágico.

Isabel Allende

**The remarkable novel from the multi-million-bestselling author of The House of the Spirits and The Japanese Lover** Meet the unforgettable 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 walks of life. Though she has no wealth, she trades her stories like currency with people who are kind to her. As she shares her stories, she introduces an eccentric cast of characters: the Lebanese émigré who takes her in, her Catholic godmother who believes in saints, a street urchin who grows up to be the leader of the guerrilla struggle, a celebrated trans cabaret star and a young refugee whose flight from postwar Europe will change Eva's life forever. As Eva tells her story, Isabel Allende brings to life a complex South American country – the rich, the poor, the sophisticated – in a novel that celebrates the power of imagination and storytelling. Praise for Isabel Allende’s Eva Luna: ‘Vibrant, colourful characters; the ordinary fused with the grotesque; a Latin American setting, tropical this time; vivid, elegant narrative. The narrator, Eva Luna, is herself a story-teller in the Allende tradition’ Guardian ‘An evident affection for words, compassion for the oppressed and the inarticulate, the daring ambition to draw cross-sections of whole societies . . . Allende's work glows’ New York Times ‘Sumptuous . . . a tale that spans forty years and moves from a surreal jungle to a modern-day urban capital where even the most apolitical are driven to risky anti-government activities’ Chicago Tribune ‘Allende rearranges reality with a blend of memories, mysticism and imagination’ The Philadelphia Inquirer ‘A remarkable novel, one in which a cascade of stories tumbled out before the reader, stories vivid and passionate and human’ Washington Post ‘Magnificent . . . Allende is a prodigious fabulist, weaving extraordinary tales’ Publishers Weekly

Isabel Allende

Una bimba solitaria si innamora dell'amante della madre e, nelle torride sieste della pensione in cui vive, inventa misteriose cerimonie che conducono entrambi sull'orlo di un profondo abisso. Da un sotterraneo abbandonato viene liberata una vecchia rimasta prigioniera per mezzo secolo, vittima di un caudillo geloso. Quando si ritrova all'aperto, nuda, i lunghi capelli bianchi che sfiorano terra, gli occhi ciechi per il buio di decenni, non ricorda neppure il proprio nome. Nel fragore di una battaglia, tra le fiamme e gli spari, un uomo violenta una ragazza e ne uccide il padre. Vivrà perseguito dal rimorso fino a tornare sul luogo del delitto, dove la donna lo aspetta per vendicarsi. Sono alcuni straordinari personaggi di questi racconti, narrati da Eva Luna, accanto ai quali incontriamo Rolf Carlé, il fotografo segnato dagli orrori della guerra, Riad Halibì, l'arabo dal cuore compassionevole, la Maestra Ines, il Benefattore e altri che i lettori di Eva Lunagià conoscono. Un sottile filo narrativo unisce queste storie d'amore e di violenza, dal tono sempre contenuto, quasi dimesso, in contrasto con la ricchezza delle immagini, l'esuberanza degli scenari e la stravaganza delle passioni che determinano i destini di una stralunata umanità.
