Isabel Allende is one of today's most important voices of Southern America literature. She was born in Lima, Peru, in 1942, but at the age of 3 she moved to Chile with her mother and two brothers. She spent her childhood there, at her maternal grandparents'home, but she also traveled a lot and lived in different countries, because of the diplomatic career of her step-father. As an adult, she returned to Chile, where she married, had two children and worked as a journalist until 1973. After the military coup of Pinochet she moved to Venezuela and, later, to United States; now she lives in San Rafael, California, with her second husband. Her books are translated in many languages. She writes mostly narrative, but she also wrote short stories for children, humor books, theater plays. Among her books: "The house of the spirits" (adapted into the movie The House of the Spirits (1993)), "Of Love and Shadows" (adapted into the movie Of Love and Shadows (1994)), "Eva Luna", "the Infinite Plain", "Paula" (a book of memories, written during a tragic period, the illness and death of her daughter), and the trilogy of books for young adults, "The City of the Beasts", "Kingdom of the Golden Dragon" and "Forest of the Pygmies", which are in talks to be adapted for the big screen.
