Isabel Allende is one of the most prolific writers in the world, and this novel really drew the public's attention to her.  Written as her grandfather lay dying, Allende started it as a letter which was intended to keep him alive in spirit.  Gradually, it turned into a novel in which she was to attempt to exorcize the demons of the era of dictator General Pinochet.

Following a long period writing journalism and translating romantic novels such as Barbara Cartland, Allende adopted a form of magical realism, which was much used in South American literature.

Although rather long for the average A-level student, La casa de los espiritus is linguistically accessible and will reward the more ambitious.
