Chilean novelist Isabel Allende has sold 15 million books in 30 languages over the past two decades. Few living writers receive the critical acclaim, popular following, and consistent sales records that she has enjoyed since the publication of her first novel, The House of the Spirits, in 1982. And yet her own story of exile after the rise of the dictator Pinochet is, perhaps, the most well-known aspect of her life and career. Profiling the author in Chile's capital, Santiago, this extended interview explores her relationship with her homeland, the effects of her upbringing and exile on her writing, her feelings about the Pinochet years in Chile, and how she finds it impossible to tell a story without embellishing the truth.
