About this Item

A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Conceived in an embrace designed to comfort a dying man, born to a servant and raised as a hired hand, Eva Luna learns quickly that she has a talent that belies her humble start: the gift of storytelling. As the years pass and her imprudent nature sends Eva from household to household—from the home of a doctor famed for mummifying the dead to a colorful whorehouse and the care of a beautiful transsexual—it is Eva’s magical imagination that keeps her alive and fuels her ardent encounters with lovers of all kinds. And as her South American homeland teeters on the brink of political chaos, and Eva’s fate is intertwined with guerrilla fighters and revolutionaries, she will find her life’s calling—and the soul mate who will envelop her in a love entirely beyond her mystical inventions.

"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...

"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
