An intoxicating collection of short
_x005Fction by one of the most beloved writers of
our time—available for the _x005Frst 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 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 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 Allende’s work. This treasure
trove of brilliantly crafted stories is a superb example of a writer working
at the height of her powers.
