Chilean American, Isabel Allende, arrived in the United States when her first novel La casa de los espiritus (House of the Spirits) became a bestseller. Her international stature has remained firmly established with her later novels and she is one of the most widely read Latin American writers in this country. (see Handbook of Hispanic Cultures in the United States: Literature and Art, p 353)
