As part of the McFarland Literary Companion series, this book introduces and honors the Spanish language author, Isabel Allende who is known for her insights on multiculturalism and world feminism. The author, Mary Ellen Snodgrass is an award-winning author of reference sources, including several of the volumes in the McFarland series.

This volume offers a chronology of Allende’s life and works, her genealogy, a literary companion that is alphabetically arranged by extensive subject entries based on various themes, a historical timeline of the Allende canon, and a helpful glossary. Most impressive is that while this resource provides scholarly information, it is organized and written in a reader-friendly and engaging style.
