Editorial Reviews

"Allende once more confounds expectations. . . . We make our way at an impetuous pace through an extravagantly imagined world, encountering flashes of wit and mischief at every turn. . . . Testimony to Allende's ambitions, her willingness to take risks, to break new ground." -MICHAEL KERRIGAN , THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT"Gripping. . . . Allende retains the storytelling magic that is her signature, while deftly juxtaposing the alternating universes of the past-including Chile's dark history of political terror-and present." -O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE
