“A beautifully crafted, searing memoir” about fleeing Chile after the Pinochet coup, and the exile’s yearning for home (Kirkus Reviews).
“A multifaceted journey that is geographical, personal and political . . . A complex, nuanced view of United States–Latin American politics and relations of the last forty some years.” —Durham Herald-Sun
“One of the most important voices coming out of South America.” —Salman Rushdie
In September 1973, the Chilean Armed Forces overthrew Socialist President Salvador Allende, ushering in the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. Ariel Dorfman, a young leftist loyal to Allende, was forced to flee for his life. In Feeding on Dreams, Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and startling honesty, the personal and political maelstroms that have defined his life since the coup.
Dorfman’s wry and masterfully told account takes us on a page-turning tour through the past several decades of North-South political history, and the complex consequences of revolution and tyranny—excavating for the first time his profound and provocative journey as an exile and the ramifications for his wife and family.
“Fascinating.” —San Francisco Examiner
“A compelling, profound portrait . . . A work to savor.” —The Boston Globe
“A book that will simultaneously undo us and sustain us.” —Tikkun
