Reviews

In her small, potent polemic . . . Isabel Allende writes about the toxic effects of "machismo", combining wit with anger as she picks apart the patriarchy * Independent *
An autobiographical meditation on feminism, power and womanhood . . . full of Isabel's wisdom and warm words * Grazia *
Her thoughts, language and ideas traverse fluidly through ideas of gender, historic injustices, her marriages and bodily experiences and literary references . . . Allende's love for women is palpable * Sydney Morning Herald *
Allende has everything it takes: the ear, the eye, the mind, the heart, the all-encompassing humanity * New York Times *
Isabel Allende is a grand storyteller who writes with surpassing compassion and insight. Her place as an icon of world literature was secured long ago. She will be celebrated, by readers and writers alike, for generations to come -- Khaled Hosseini
