An intoxicating collection of short fiction by one of the most beloved writers of our timeÔÇöavailable for the first time in ebook.
Eva 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 Carl├ę, Eva answers his request for a story ÔÇťyou have never told anyone beforeÔÇŁ with these twenty-three samples of her vibrant artistry. Interweaving the real and the magical, she explores love, vengeance, compassion, and the strengths of women, creating a world that is at once poignantly familiar and intriguingly new.
Rendered in her sumptuously imagined, uniquely magical style, The Stories of Eva Luna is the cornerstone of AllendeÔÇÖs work. This treasure trove of brilliantly crafted stories is a superb example of a writer working at the height of her powers.
