Description - The Stories of Eva Luna by Isabel Allende

INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE JAPANESE LOVER A captivating collection of short fiction by one of the most beloved writers of our timeEva Luna is a young woman whose powers as a storyteller bring her friendship and love. Lying in bed with her lover, European refugee and journalist Rolf Carle, Eva answers his request for a story 'you have never told anyone before' with these twenty-three samples of her vibrant artistry. Interweaving the real and the magical, she explores love, vengeance, compassion and female power, depicting worlds that are at once poignantly familiar and intriguingly new. Rendered in her sumptuously imagined, uniquely lyrical style, The Stories of Eva Luna is a cornerstone of Isabel Allende's work, and in her character Eva Luna she creates a modern-day Scheherazade. 'Eva Luna's stories are delicate, their images akin to poetry . . . Perfectly crafted and thematically rich' Barbara Kingsolver 'Vital and compelling' The Times 'Arresting and altogether distinctive, powerful and haunting; a collection to be read aloud and repeated for generations' Los Angeles Times 'Enchanting, magnificent. Absolute magic on every level' Cosmopolitan
