Produktbeschreibung
On a rainy December day in 1992, Isabel Allende and her family go to the forest near their home in northern California to scatter Isabel?s daughter Paula?s ashes to the wind. From that first scene, Allende unfolds for Paula?and for the reader?the story of what happens in the years that follow. THE SUM OF OUR DAYS shows readers how one of the world?s most imaginative writers reconstructs her own life in the aftermath of her daughter?s death. In recounting the days?kept fresh for Isabel through daily correspondence with her mother in Chile?Allende unfolds an episodic narrative of the wildly eccentric, strong-minded, and eclectic tribe she gathers around her. She reveals the amazing stories behind her books, the superstitions that guide her writing process, and her adventurous travels. Most importantly, though, this book introduces us to the inner world of Allende: the importance of her marriage to Willie Gordon; the adventures, dilemmas, disasters, and quirks of her children and step-children, their various partners, and of the friends, gathered from afar, who have made themselves essential to her. All of these characters have one thing in common: they have touched Isabel?s life, and so found their way into her heart, her tribe, and her writing. Narrated with warmth, humor, exceptional candor and wisdom, THE SUM OF OUR DAYS is a portrait of a contemporary family, tied together by the love, strong will, and stubborn determination of a beloved matriarch, the indomitable Isabel Allende.
