The REAL Isabel Allende Blog

This post is also available in: Spanish

My Invented Isabel is the REAL Isabel Allende blog. Others exist, but rest assured I actually KNOW her and she sort of approves of what I write. I say sort of because sometimes I am not sure what she is saying when she yells at me in Spanish. Initially, I’ll be posting quite a bit, since we have a lot to catch up on. September was a very exciting month around here and we want to share it with you. The Chilean miners, who have been buried underground since the summer, are scheduled to come out today, and Isabel is particularly thrilled, having just “visited” them while in Chile. Also, there are a bunch of awards floating about the office. It is hard to keep track of them all…There is a lot going on and the pace is picking up. The plan is to post updates every Wednesday, so stay tuned. Coming next week, a visit with Mario Vargas Llosa, the recent recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and more about Olivia, the shy, dark creature that meanders through Isabel’s life…

    Hi Sarah.
    Im a student from Norway. In school (spanish class) we (my friend and I) have a project about Isabel Allende. We're going to talk about a little about her life, La casa de los spiritus, the fundation, her writing style and little bit more. I don't quite understand why she is chilian, when she is born in Peru. I know she moved to Chile and lived there, but still I don't understand why.. And I've been trying to find any information about her writing style, but I've been looking and I can't find anything. Anyway, If you want to help me (us), that would make me (us) very happy. Are there any really important things about her life, that we need to have in our presentation? Maybe we might surprise our teacher a bit. Thank you for your time, even if you decide not to help us. Your blog is great!

    Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for the great blog about my favorite author. I write a blog about virtual itineraries at http://www.zombiesandparadise.com. I've been writing about itineraries through South America recently and today my post about Santiago turned into a book review for Ines of My Soul!

    Hi, I'm a female journalist working in Iran.Here we really like Allende. Her books are being translated and published in Iran, so I was hoping if I could have an interview with her. would you please help me out with this?
    Thanks

    >Hola ! Muy contenta poder escribir algo sobre Isabel que conoci el ano pasado por un amigo chileno que me regalo un libro de ella. Me gusto y lei luego Paula, un libro maravilloso donde todas emociones vienen en mi ser ! Es algo estupendo y donde Isabel lo da todo y donde tenemos que cojer ciertas cosas que ella dice. No he leido aun todos sus libros, pero creanme que lo hare !!!
    Soy francesa y comprare los libros cuando valla en Espana para leerlos en su idioma !
    Un abrazo. nicolediaz827@hotmail.com

    >Simple y sencillamente quiero expresarle mi más profundo agradecimiento por haberme reencontrado con la lectura a través de su obra. Paula ha sido, quizás, la obra más significativa en mi vida. Con ella me angustié, reí, lloré, volví a llorar, disfrutando cada una de las sensaciones y sentimientos despertados. Desde mi función docente, creo que es un magnífico ejemplar literario para compartir con mis niños de primaria. Muchas gracias y espero pueda, algún día, regalarme un comentario personal. Desde mi gran país MÉXICO, le mando un abrazo muy afectuoso. r_gaytan@cablevision.net.mx

    >Hello, I am a student and I am about to give an oral on Isabel Allende's The House of the Spirits and I read somewhere that her grandmother was alot like Clara in that she was clairovoyant. Is this true? I have found many similarities between this story and her life. Also how does she feel about the translation of Spanish stories into English? If you could email me at h.m.murdock95@gmail.com it would be very helpful to my oral. Thank you.

    >Hola. Soy mamen manzano de España (Madrid). Desde siempre me ha encantado Isabel Allende y al igual que ella me fascina la escritura. Tengo grandes deseos de conocerla y me parece estupendo que tenga un blog oficial. Yo acabo de crear uno también y dada la estima que tengo por ustedes, les agradecería, desde mi humildad personal que entraran y me dieran su opinión sobre mis escritos. Deseo de todo corazón, y sin ningún ánimo de prepotencia ni orgullo, llegar a ser aquí en España, una figura relevante al igual que lo es ella. Quiero con lo que escribo ayudar a las personas, transmitirles amor y paz y sobre todo mucha fe.
    Gracias de antemano. Mi blog es: mamenmanzano.blogspot.com
    Saludos desde España.

    >Hola, soy Manuel, de Chile. No me atrevia a hacerlo, pero ademas de la admiracion por Isabel Allende, la verdad, neccesito contactarla y no se como hacerlo. Me atrevo incluso a plantear el motivo de mi necesidad.. Se trata de una historia que puede ser un lindo best seller y quiero compartirlo con ella.
    Si alguien me puede ayudar a ello, sere muy agradecido.

    >A few weeks back, I finished reading Paula and was so moved by it, that I wrote a letter to Isabel and tried to fax it or email it. Unfortunately both methods failed (I used the contact details from her web page).

    Do you happen to know if either one or the other work now?

    Thanks

    >Hey there Sarah, I fell in love with reading by reading Paula, from Isabel. It was a weird story though you know? I was left and LOCKED by "mistake" on my school's library so I surfed by a section picked up a random book and started reading out of boredom, turns out I turned to be a junkie who craves for books and loves to write a lot, A LOT (believe me…)

    on the other hand…I happen to have a blog where I post book reviews, short stories, meditations and stuff and while writing about Isabel I found out this blog…just wanted to bless you for writing this blog!! Now I feel like I know I little more about the author that opened to me the wonderful world of literature.

    I really love Isabel works and I love her as well too! Thanks for not saying no to her on this! 😉 God bless and keep up the awesome work! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    >Hi Sarah, I`m Sarah
    I`m from Germany and I`m 18 years old. In school we had to write a long text about a special topic.
    my topic is "mother and daughter-Isabel Allende and her novel Paula"
    One part of this big job is the text, but we also have a conversacion about it in a view weeks.
    I greatest wish is that perhaps Isabel herself recieves my text, and perhaps i will get an answer- that will be great.

    If you can halp me, please mail back

    >Hello
    I am a great fan of Isabel. I have read all his books, and have them in my library.
    I have been lucky to publish this year my first novel, titled: Secrets of Sand.
    And in this year 2011, I will return to publish another novel.
    I leave my blog him:

    http://helenanc.blogspot.com/:

    I would like to know if it is very difficult to manage to sell in USA.
    It would be interesting for the quantity of people who reads in Spanish.
    I would like to know if Isabel might help
    Gracias
    Helena

    >Hola, Sarah, te escribo desde Caracas-Republica Bolivariana de Venezuela, mi nombre es Alfidio Antonio Valera Mejias, y en los actuales momentos estoy leyendo el libro de la Sra. Isabel Allende "PAULA", en verdad que me ha cautivado el mismo, ya que ha sabido muy bien engranar todas las historias y anécdotas de su vida.

    Me gustaría que le hicieras llegar esta petición personal a la Sra Allende. Desearía leer un libro escrito por tan renombrada escritora sobre el cruel y sangriento golpe estado propiciado por la CIA contra nuestro difunto y apreciado camarada Salvador Allende y contra el valeroso pueblo chileno.
    Atentamente,
    Ing. Alfidio Valera
