Überblick: 'Nostalgia is my vice' admits Isabel Allende in My Invented Country. A question about nostalgia propels an exploration of her past including the complicated history and politics of Chile where she spent the better part of her childhood. Despite her strong connection with Chile Allende says she has been an outsider nearly all her life. Her stepfather was a diplomat so her family moved quite frequently. However in her travel diary Allende compares everything to Chile her 'one eternal reference' point. 'From saying goodbye so often my roots have dried up' she notes. She successfully reclaims them however through two channels. Allende relays anecdotes about what she calls her untraditional family--whom she has based some of her novels upon including The House of the Spirits. Like a few of her novels though her own story is lost in heavy policy analysis. Interspersed among her ancestors' tales is an all-too-exhaustive report of Chile: the terrain its people customs and language its heroes and villains and its government. Allende fled Chile after the military coup on September 11 1973. Twenty-eight years later and now living in the United States she is haunted by this date when terrorists attack New York City and Washington DC. Allende admits that the place she is homesick for may have never existed. In spite of that Allende asserts that she can live and write anywhere: 'I don't belong to one land but to several or perhaps only to the ambit of the fiction I write.' The irony is that she steadfastly has 'one foot in Chile and another here'. --C.J. Carrillo Pressestimmen `Allende's writing is so vivid we smell the countryside hear the sounds see the bright birds the scorched earth smell and even taste the soft fruit.' The Times `Allende has a gift for conversational writing and a sharp sense of humour...I very much enjoyed this visit to the other Chile that half-remembered country of her imagination.' New Statesman `Allende is incapable of telling a bad story. She writes of her own experience with a kind of wild candour. Her heroically sustained narrative her lovingly prepared plots and surprise inventions explode in an exaltation.' Independent `Lucid original and expounded with an unquestionable sense of humor...part essay and part autobiography...When Allende poses sweeping general truths she leaves room for argument...But the book gets my undivided attention when it expounds on the relationship of the author to that country of hers invented imaginary fictional to the story of her family which is itself invented memory and to her vocation as a narrator...It will provoke curiosity. And that is where everything begins.' LA Times Alle Produktbeschreibungen
