Publisher's Synopsis

A beautiful hardback edition of a Latin American classic - the enthralling saga of three generations of a proud and passionate family, secret loves and violent revolution.

'Extraordinary... Powerful... Sharply observant, witty and eloquent' New York Times

As a girl, Clara del Valle can read fortunes, make objects move as if they had lives of their own, and predict the future.

Following the mysterious death of her sister, Rosa the Beautiful, Clara is mute for nine years. When she breaks her silence, it is to announce that she will be married soon to the stern and volatile landowner Esteban Trueba.

Set in an unnamed Latin American country over three generations, The House of the Spirits is a magnificent epic reminiscent of the writing of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

'A novel to be read for its brilliant craftsmanship and its narrative of inescapable power' El Pais

'Intensely moving. Both entertaining and deeply serious' Evening Standard

Vintage Quarterbound Classics: Bound to be beautiful
