Isabel Allende’s Eva Luna: A Response (Update #2)

Just yesterday, I finished reading Chilean author Isabel Allende’s novel Eva Luna, in which Allende traces family lines and portrays the magic of storytelling. With the presence of magical realism, Allende tells Eva Luna’s convoluted story and that of Rolf Carle, a revolutionary reporter and Eva Luna’s love.

I highly recommend this novel as a thought-provoking free read. Beyond that, I plan on using aspects of Allende’s South American, feminist style in my next original piece, a short story saturated with magical realism and inspired by the works of Isabel Allende and Clarice Lispector.
