Isabel Allende--known as """"la Famosa"""" to her fellow Chileans--is the world's most widely read Spanish-language author. Her career coincides with the emergence of multiculturalism and global feminism, and her powerfully honest, revelatory works touch the pulse points of humankind. Her bravura study of the interwoven roles of women in family history opens the minds of outsiders to the sufferings of women and their children during years of social and political nightmare. This reference work provides an introduction to Allende's life as well as a guided overview of her body of work. Designed for the fan and scholar alike, this text features an alphabetised, fully-annotated listing of major terms in the Allende canon, including fictional characters, motifs, historical events, and themes. A comprehensive index is included.
