Isabel Allende(b. 1942) is considered one of the first successful women novelists in Latin American. She writes in the "magical realism" tradition and is well-known for her popular Spanish novels, including The House of the Spirits and City of the Beasts. Allende also helped others escape the brutal junta Augusto Pinochet, leaving Chile only when she herself received death threats. Allende's writing is based in part on her experiences, which are extensive indeed. Born in 1942 in Lima, Peru, her literary career included translating English romance novels into Spanish in Chile. She was fired from this job after making unauthorized changes to make the heroines more intelligent and independent. She was married to her second husband, lawyer and novelist William Gordon from 1988 to 2015. Slightly soiled near signature (fully legible) and postmark stamp. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
