9780060545680: Mi Pais Inventado: Un Paseo Nostalgico por Chile (Spanish Edition)

El primer recuerdo que Isabel Allende tiene de Chile es el de una casa que nunca conoció: la "casa grande y vieja" de la calle Cueto, donde nació su madre. Esta casa, evocada por su abuelo con tanta frecuencia que Isabel cree haber vivido allí, se convierte en la protagonista de su primera novela La Casa de los Espíritus. Dicha obra vuelve a aparecer al comienzo de las fascinantes y seductoras memorias, Mi País Inventado, que ahora nos ofrece esta talentosa escritora.

Los asiduos lectores de Allende reconocerán inmediatamente a los miembros de esta familia chilena -- abuelos, bisabuelos, tías, tíos y amigos -- , personajes de carácter mítico que pueblan este magnífico libro. A su vez, es un retrato inolvidable de la idiosincrasia del pueblo chileno, su historia violenta y su espíritu indomable. Aunque Isabel afirma haber sido una extranjera en su propio país -- "Nunca encajé en ningún sitio, ni en mi familia, ni en mi clase social ni en la religión que se me confirió" -- lleva consigo hasta hoy la marca de la política y la magia de su tierra natal. En Mi País Inventado explora el papel de la memoria y la nostalgia que le ayudaron a dar forma a su vida y a sus libros.

Dos acontecimientos vitales alteran la peripatética narrativa de este libro: el golpe militar y la violenta muerte de su tío, Salvador Allende Gossens el 11 de septiembre de 1973 que la condujeron a exiliarse y a convertirse en escritora, y el ataque terrorista del 11 de septiembre del 2001, en los Estados Unidos, que sucita en ella un sentimiento de lealtad a su segunda patria. Mi País Inventado, cuya estructura sigue el funcionamiento de la memoria, recorre de acá para allá la distancia temporal en la que se acumulan las vida pasada y presentes de la autora. Esta obra se dirige al inmigrante, ya que refleja su experiencia y su lucha por mantener una vida interior coherente en un mundo lleno de contradicciones.
