Politics and Prose Presents ISABEL ALLENDE
Isabel Allende has dazzled readers worldwide with her powerful storytelling and distinctive hybrid of magic realism and historical romance. Her eighteenth work of fiction, IN THE MIDST OF WINTER, explores issues of immigration, exile, and aging while telling the stories of three people brought together by chance. The narrative starts in snowy Brooklyn, where a sixty-three-year old human rights scholar hits a car driven by a young undocumented immigrant from Guatemala. When she needs more help than the professor can give her, he calls on his tenant, a lecturer from Chile, and the action spirals out to include events in various countries of Latin America from the 1970s to the present.
Allende will be in conversation with Susan Coll, author of five novels including, most recently, THE STAGER.
