after her school years, isabel allende got married and worked as a reporter for a magazine and for television. then in nineteen seventy-three her uncle, the president of chile, salvador allende, was murdered in a military overthrow.

in nineteen seventy-five isabel allende and her family fled to venezuela. she based "the house of spirits" on a letter that she wrote to her grandmother who was dying. the book shows the world from the view of women who suffer but survive the problems they face. some of mizz allende's other books also deal with this issue.

voice one:

isabel allende has lived in a number of countries around the world. her marriage ended in divorce. a year later, she married a man she had met while in the united states to talk about one of her books. that was in nineteen eighty-eight; they have lived in northern california ever since.

after a few years in the united states, mizz allende wrote a book called "the infinite plan." the story is about an american man. it is set in the united states. "the infinite plan" was very different from her other books, which were mostly set in south america. at least one book critic noted with praise for mizz allende that not many immigrants write about natives of their new country. but she still writes in spanish.

isabel allende says she always considered herself a latin american. but, as she told the new york times, the terrorist attacks on the united states on september eleventh, two thousand one, changed her feelings about her identity.
