Description: El primer recuerdo que Isabel Allende tiene de Chile es el de una casa que nunca conoci: la "casa grande y vieja" de la calle Cueto, donde naci su madre. Esta casa, evocada por su abuelo con tanta frecuencia que Isabel cree haber vivido all, se convierte en la protagonista de su primera novela La Casa de los Espritus. Dicha obra vuelve a aparecer al comienzo de las fascinantes y seductoras memorias, Mi Pas Inventado, que ahora nos ofrece esta talentosa escritora. Los asiduos lectores de Allende reconocern inmediatamente a los miembros de esta familia chilena --abuelos, bisabuelos, tas, tos y amigos--, personajes de carcter mtico que pueblan este magnfico libro. A su vez, es un retrato inolvidable de la idiosincrasia del pueblo chileno, su historia violenta y su espritu indomable. Aunque Isabel afirma haber sido una extranjera en su propio pas --"Nunca encaj en ningn sitio, ni en mi familia, ni en mi clase social ni en la religin que se me confiri"--lleva consigo hasta hoy la marca de la poltica y la magia de su tierra natal. En Mi Pas Inventado explora el papel de la memoria y la nostalgia que le ayudaron a dar forma a su vida y a sus libros. Dos acontecimientos vitales alteran la peripattica narrativa de este libro: el golpe militar y la violenta muerte de su to, Salvador Allende Gossens el 11 de septiembre de 1973 que la condujeron a exiliarse y a convertirse en escritora, y el ataque terrorista del 11 de septiembre del 2001, en los Estados Unidos, que sucita en ella un sentimiento de lealtad a su segunda patria. Mi Pas Inventado, cuya estructura sigue el funcionamiento de la memoria, recorre de ac para all la distancia temporal en la que se acumulan las vida pasada y presentes de la autora. Esta obra se dirige al inmigrante, ya que refleja su experiencia y su lucha por mantener una vida interior coherente en un mundo lleno de contradicciones.

Isabel Allende was born in 1942 in Lima, Peru, the daughter of a Chilean diplomat. When her parents separated, young Isabel moved with her mother to Chile, where she spent the rest of her childhood. She married at the age of 19 and had two children, Paula and Nicolas. Her uncle was Salvador Allende, the president of Chile. When he was overthrown in the coup of 1973, she fled Chile, moving to Caracas, Venezuela. While living in Venezuela, Allende began writing her novels, many of them exploring the close family bonds between women. Her first novel, The House of the Spirits, has been translated into 27 languages, and was later made into a film. She then wrote Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, and The Stories of Eva Luna, all set in Latin America. The Infinite Plan was her first novel to take place in the United States. In Paula, Allende wrote her memoirs in connection with her daughter's illness and death. She delved into the erotic connections between food and love in Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses. In addition to writing books, Allende has worked as a TV interviewer, magazine writer, school administrator, and a secretary at a U.N. office in Chile. She received the 1996 Harold Washington Literacy Award. She lives in California. Her title Maya's Notebook made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013.
