INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE JAPANESE LOVER
A captivating collection of short fiction by one of the most beloved writers of our time
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 Carlé, 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.
