Oh, a little, just a little, It was as if, hidden behind her long lashes, she was trying to see.’ ‘And in the glow of the tall candles, those who were keeping watch leaned forward to observe the clarity and transparency in that narrow fringe of pupil death had failed to slim. With wonder and reverence, they leaned forward, tin- aware that she could see them, ‘For she was seeing, she was feeling. ‘ In the same delicately haunting style she used in HOUSE OF MIST, Maria-Luisa Bombal tells the story of a beautiful and violent woman, who sees clearly, only after death, the intricate pattern which her passing made in the lives of those who were close to her, The spell of the mists and shadows of Chile and of the colorful people of that strange and romantic country is woven compellingly to create a tale as vivid as a dream. Maria-Luisa Bombal was born in Chile in 1910 and educated in France. At twenty she wrote articles for Chilean literary reviews, In 1988 she went to live in the Argentine, where her first book, LA ULTIMA NIEBLA, was published in 1934. She returned to Chile in 1941 and was awarded the Grand Prix de Rqpan of Santiago for her second novel, LA AMORTAJADA. Her first English novel, HOUSE OF MIST, was published in 1947 by Farrar, Straus. She represented Chile in the International Congress of Pen Clubs at the World’s Fair in 1938, and in 1942 she came here again on a mission to the Library of Congress for the Bibliotheque Nationale. In 1943 she was married to Pal ‘de Saint-Phalle. They have one daughter and live in New York. . Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With A Small Water Stain Mark At The Bottom Spine.
