From the Publisher:

"An exotic dance that beguiles and entices... The enchanted and enchanting account of a contemporary Scheherazade, a wide-eyed American teller-of-tales who triumphs over harsh reality through the creative power of her own imagination... "Imaginative, original, convincing, pointed, and spiced with good humor and wit." -- San Francisco Chronicle.

"Remarkable... a cascade of stories tumbles out before the reader, stories vivid and passionate and human... Allende seems to draw characters and tales from a bottomless well as Eva Luna narrates the story of her life." -- Washington Post Book World.

"An epic tale... Eva matures and comes to love a Turkish merchant, a guerrilla fighter, and a German immigrant... [in] this romantic confection of a novel." -- People
