Product description

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 European lover, 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, creating a world that is 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. This treasure trove of brilliantly crafted stories is a superb example of a writer working at the height of her powers. 'Eva Luna's stories are delicate, their images akin to poetry . . . Perfectly craftedand 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
