The House Of the Spirits

By Allende, Isabel




The House of the Spirits (La casa de los espĂ­ritus, 1982) is the debut novel by Isabel Allende. Initially, the novel was rejected by several Spanish-language publishers, but became an instant best seller when published in Barcelona in 1982. The novel was critically acclaimed around the world, and catapulted Allende to literary stardom. That same year, the novel was named Best Novel of the Year in Chile, and she received the country's Panorama Literario award.

The House of the Spirits: A Novel.

Allende, Isabel

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1985. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "For John. It begins like this: 'Barrabas came to us by sea...' Isabel Allende." Allende has also drawn a flower on the title page. Translated from the Spanish by Magda Bogin. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Jacket illustration by Michel Guire Vaka. Jacket design by Sara Eisenman. A unique example. One of the most important novels of the twentieth century, The House of the Spirits is an enthralling epic that spans decades and lives, weaving the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate. "Spectacular...An absorbing and distinguished work...The House of the Spirits with its all-informing, generous, and humane sensibility, is a unique achievement, both personal witness and possible allegory of the past, present, and future of Latin America" (Alexander Coleman New York Times Book Review).
