By Isabel Allende. Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden. Alfred A. In her nightmares, she sees ''ashen bodies in the Morgue; Javier Leal dangling like some grotesque fruit from a tree in the children's park; the endless lines of women inquiring about their desaparecidos. Evangelina Ranquileo, barefoot and in her nightgown, calling from the shadows. By the time we read this passage, we know that the grotesque events described belong to Irene's life, as well as to her dreams; and we are reminded again that the transactions between the extraordinary and the mundane, which occur in so much Latin American fiction, are not merely a literary technique, but also a mirror of a historical reality, in which the fantastic is frequently part of everyday life. In fact, a world where military death squads routinely erase innocent civilian lives, where the word ''disappear'' is used as a transitive verb, seems to almost require surrealism - or some other form of heightened writing - to adequately convey its horror.


Plot Summary. Metacritic Reviews. Signed by the author. She is beautiful, brave and devoted.

Eva Luna: Popular Penguins. User Reviews. Jose Camilo Gallardo Fine in plain blue printed wrappers.

Paperbackpages. Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden. First off: a third of the novel is a waste of time. My edition numbers pages.

Some scenes are brutal and difficult, necessary to make it all believable, but can this be enjoyed when people whom the government considers suspicious shwdows "disappear". Go to Amazon. Readers who don't care for that style might still find value in "Of Love and Shadows". Irene has a good life in the material sense.
