The life story of Isabel Allende _ one of the world's favourite writers _ is as exotic, passionate and inspiring as one of her novels.Just three when her parents divorced, Isabel Allende was raised in her grandparents' home in Chile. She left school at 16; and married Miguel Frías at 19. She then juggled her work as a journalist, editor, advice columnist and television interviewer with looking after her two children.But when her cousin the Chilean president Salvador Allende was assassinated in 1973 in Pinochet's right-wing military coup, her life changed profoundly. It was too dangerous to stay in Chile; and she, her husband, and their two children fled to Venezuela. During her impoverished exile, she started writing _The House of the Spirits_. Based on her memories of her family and the political upheaval in her native country, it became an international bestseller and everything changed again_
